Goat Rocks Fire Update for October 6, 2022

Goat Rocks Fire
News - 10/26/2022

Highlights: The fire will likely become more active today as drier and gustier winds arrive from the east. Control lines continue to hold.  Firefighters have established a contingency line in between the fire and the communities near the fire. Engines are patrolling in the community and along US Highway 12 throughout the day and night. A structure protection specialist is working with Lewis County on coordinating an emergency response plan, while staging for tonight’s increased winds. Local agencies are also on standby to provide additional structure protection if needed. Some engines and crews are timing out, but they are being replaced with fresh firefighters who are arriving from across the country. Aerial attack continues, especially in the Coal Creek drainage.   

Weather: Winds are coming from the east today and are higher than recent days. They will average 12 mph throughout the day, but gusts may reach 20 mph. These drier east winds will lower relative humidity levels to about 20%. The high for today is 82 degrees. The weather forecast calls for temperatures to remain in the upper 70s and lower 80s through Sunday. As of now, Monday will bring in cooler temperatures, with a high of 68 degrees.

Evacuations: Areas northeast of Butter Creek and north of US-12, including Lower Timberline and Goat Rocks, are still at an Evacuation Level 1 (Be Ready). Upper Timberline remains at an Evacuation Level 2 (Be Set).
