Double Creek Fire
News - 09/29/2022
Double Creek, Sturgill, Nebo, Goat Mountain Two Fires
September 29, 2022
Daily Update – 8:00 AM


Highlights: Yesterday saw an increase in fire behavior across the fires. Today crews will assess those active fire areas and resources stand ready to respond to any changes. Overnight precipitation and more moisture today should substantially reduce fire activity.

Double Creek Fire: 161,510 acres, no change | 89% contained | 436 personnel assigned
The northern region was very active yesterday in the Cow Creek and Lightning Creek drainages. The northern portion received wetting rains overnight, and crews will assess fuel conditions in those areas today to determine resource needs for the next few days. Along the western side of the fire, suppression repair is nearly complete.

Eagle Cap Wilderness Fires Sturgill Fire: 21,103 acres, no change | 72% of objectives achieved | 60 personnel assigned
The fire was very active yesterday and burned towards the Stanley Guard Station. Helicopters dropped water to slow fire spread and firefighters were in place to protect structures. The fire also moved toward Red’s Horse Ranch yesterday, where a structure protection task force remained in place. Active monitoring will continue today.

Nebo Fire: 12,602 acres, no change | 78% of objectives achieved | 0 personnel assigned

Goat Mountain 2 Fire: 548 acres, no change | 0 personnel assigned
Quiet for 13 days, the Goat Mountain 2 Fire made a run to the east, slopping over a ridgeline and backing down the west side of the Lostine River drainage. Helicopters made several water drops to slow the fire growth. This area will also continue to be monitored today.

Weather: A cold front moved through overnight bringing precipitation, higher relative humidity, and much cooler temperatures that will linger into Friday. Over the weekend, a gradual warming and drying trend is expected.
