Ground crews are continuing to work in difficult terrain to increase the containment of the Elaho fire. Today they are working in the northern end of the fire to contain hotspots. Crews are also working in the southern end of the fire, east of the Elaho River. In the southwest corner they will be building a heli-pad so additional crews can be flown in to commence control work for the area. Helicopter bucketing operations are occurring east of the Lava Creek Conservancy, within the Clendinning Park Boundary, and in the vicinity of the upper Elaho Main road.
