September 30, 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: The Northeast Oregon Type 3 Team has assumed command of all fires from the Southern Area Blue Team. During the last 24 hours between a quarter inch to over an inch and a half of precipitation has fallen on the area. Cool, moist conditions are expected to remain through Saturday. Today crews will assess fires to determine what affect the rain had on remaining areas of heat. Suppression repair is nearly complete and those resources will be reassigned and the overall team size will drop as the Southern Area Blue Team departs.  

Double Creek Fire

Areas of heat remain in the Cow Creek and Lightning Creek drainages. The northern portion received drenching rains overnight, and crews will assess fuel conditions in those areas today. Suppression repair along the western side of the fire is nearly complete. Little to no fire spread is expected today due to the wet conditions.
