The Staley Fire and Tumble Bug 2 Fire are in a rehab stage and the area closure has been lifted. There is still smoke within the interior of the fire so some roads remain closed. They include the:

2134 south of its junction with 2136 and all connected roads within the closure area FSR 2136 and all connected roads within the closure area FSR 2137 and all connected roads within the closure area

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.
