Members of the Incident Management Team, Manti-La Sal National Forest personnel and cooperators will provide an update on the status of the Coal Hollow Fire. Members of the Northern Rockies Incident Management Type 2 Team, scheduled to assume management of the 29,912- acre fire on Saturday, will also be at the meeting.
