Good progress is being made on both fires. The Staley Fire now has a fire line around the entire perimeter. Most of the line is secure, but some portions still need to be strengthened with some burnout and a great deal of mop-up. The Tumble Bug 2 Fire has been lined and is being mopped up. Some suppression resources are moving to other fires.

The Staley Fire is 23 miles south of Oakridge, Oregon on the Middle Fork Ranger District of the Willamette National Forest. It was reported at about 9 p.m. on August 9th. The fire was caused by a lighting strike. The 87-acre Tumble Bug 2 fires started about the same time 5 miles east of the Staley Fire. The goal of the suppression efforts was to minimize acres burned to protect public and private timber, cultural and historic resources, and critical habitat for the Northern Spotted Owl and Bull Trout.
