Weather slows Johnson Bar Fire

     Evacuation orders remain in effect in the Selway Corridor as the Johnson Bar Fire continues to thre8-21-14--johnson-bar-fireaten structures.

     Rainfall, higher humidity, and somewhat cooler temperatures during the past week helped limit the fire's growth, but numerous spot fires have flared up, including one on the north side of the Selway and one to the north of the Middle Fork. 

This pyrocumulus cloud from the Johnson Bar Fire near Lowell was observed last week from about milepost 83 on US Highway 12. Contributed by Nick Gerhardt
