Remarks: Installed where the 2003 Baker's Hole fire encountered LP0. Represents the partial burn on 7 July under an ember shower. Many spotfires ignited but could not grow together. The overall area was bucketed by a helicopter but the extent and location are not well known.started on 7/5/2003. The plot may be located in 1916 burn: all downed woody 100 + 1000-hr are relatively small.
