After continued cool, wet weather across the area, the South Fork Complex has shown no further activity.
Area Closures remain in effect to ensure public safety on the South Fork Complex at this time. The current Area Closure Orders, along with maps, are available at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/malheur/alerts-notices.
Forest Officials encourage everyone to be safe and careful when recreating, hunting, or using the National Forest. Please make sure your campfires are DEAD OUT before leaving their site; the fire should be cold to the touch with no potential to ignite. Although temperatures are getting cooler at night, we are still in fire season; vegetation is still very dry, and the weather is still hot during the day.
