Incident Overview

The Horse Prairie Fire was reported at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 26, burning approximately 12 miles west of Riddle and 8 miles southeast of Camas Valley. Douglas Forest Protective Association crews arrived on the scene and estimated that the fire was already about 50 acres in size, with multiple spot fires, and an ODF incident management team was requested.

On Sunday, August 27, ODF Incident Management Team 3 (Incident Commander Link Smith) assumed command of the fire, transitioning that command (after their standard 14-day assignment) on September 9 to ODF IMT 1 (Incident Commander Joe Hessel). On September 15, with the fire nearing containment, ODF IMT 1 turned command back over to DFPA, who continued to staff the fire with a smaller, local, (Type 3) fire management organization.

The Horse Prairie Fire ultimately burned approximately 16,436 acres of both private industrial and non-industrial forestlands (8,810 acres) and BLM forestlands (7,626 acres). The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
