Double Creek Fire Update - 10/03/2021

Double Creek Fire
News - 10/03/2022

Double Creek, Sturgill, Nebo, Goat Mountain Two Fires="margin-bottom:0in;line-height:normal">

Monday October 3, 2022 Update – 8:00 AM                  Northeast Oregon Type 3 Team  

NOTICE:  This update will be provided every 3 days and when significant changes occur.


Highlights:
Weather continued to be cool and moist over the weekend with minimal drying on Sunday. Crews continued to survey areas of heat on the north end of the Double Creek and Sturgill Fires. Plans are in place to use bucket drops and crews to address hot spots as terrain and weather safely allows. Suppression repair is nearly complete and the size of the team will continue to shrink as those resources are released. The change in acreage is a combined result of active burning last week, and increased accuracy due to IR flights and ground/aerial surveys.
 

Double Creek Fire
: 171,497 acres, increased 9,906 acres | 89% contained | 235 personnel assigned
Areas of heat remain in the Cow Creek, Deep Creek, and Lightning Creek drainages. As weather gradually warms and dries over next several days, a few smokes will result as fuels begin to dry out. Crews and helicopters will be monitoring for smoke and are prepared to respond quickly.

Eagle Cap Wilderness Fires


Sturgill Fire
: 21,621 acres, increased 112 acres | 80% of objectives achieved | 49 personnel assigned
A fire crew has been deployed to monitor the northern edge and minimal fire activity expected for the next 3 days.

Nebo Fire
: 12,608 acres, increased 1 acre | 94% of objectives achieved | 0 personnel assigned


Goat Mountain 2 Fire
: 584 acres, no change in acres | 0 personnel assigned
Monitoring will continue but little to no fire activity is expected for the Nebo and Goat Mountain 2 Fires. Updates for these fires will only be provided if significant changes occur.

Weather
: Gradual warming trend for the next several days will result in fuel moistures trending downward and expect a few smokes to develop today. As fuels continue to dry through the week, additional smokes are expected from fire areas that have remaining pockets of heat.
