Closed Timber Litter
Medium Logging Slash
Timber (Grass and Understory)
Fuels consist of mixed conifer, grass and shrub fields with numerous snags standing and down. Private lands have various aged conifer plantation, USFS lands and upper elevations transition to mature Douglas fir - a significant snag component. Live fuels are dormant and grasses are cured, and may contribute to fire intensity and spread. Previous management and multiple ownerships contribute to many fuel type changes, including slash.
Continue progress on indirect line, patrol and mop-up near private land and other values at risk. Identify and begin suppression repair plans along direct line and private lands.
|Projected Incident Activity|
Smoldering and some creeping will continue, leading to increased isolated interior smokes.
The fire will continue smoldering and creeping, some spread is possible but unlikely, smoke volume will continue to increase.
One reportable accident occurred on 9/26/2020.
A strong ridge of high pressure residing over Western Oregon delivered warm and dry conditions. For a second straight day overnight recoveries were very poor on the mid and upper slopes with morning humidity levels near 20 percent. A thin layer of high smoke from California wildfires moved into the area creating some haze, otherwise skies were sunny. Winds were light and temperatures warmed into the 80s. Warm and dry weather will continue on Thursday as a heat dome remains over Oregon. Humidity levels will be a bit drier on Thursday with afternoon temperatures warming back into the 80s. Smoke concentrations could increase in the valleys as additional smoke drifts in from the south. Winds will remain light with speeds around 5 mph.
