Forest Fires in the Catskill & Gunks

Unread post by dave »

Town Wawarsing in Ulster Counties

Wildland Fires:
Forest Rangers worked on suppression efforts at five different fires estimated at 221 acres. The largest fire was the Napanoch Point fire in Ulster County, which was started by a lightning strike and burned 142 acres of land. Forest Rangers led the incident response in cooperation with the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, New York State Police, Ulster County, and other State and local partners. Eight days after the fire started, the teams of firefighters had the fire under control. Dry weather throughout the summer increases the risk of fires.
