Chetco Bar Air Quality, September 16, 2017

Chetco Bar Fire Wildfire
News – 9/16/2017

Smoke: Winds from the north/northeast will again push smoke into Agness and and lesser amounts into coastal areas including Gold Beach, Brookings and northern California. Periods of Unhealthy air may affect Agness, while coastal communities will experience more moderate conditions. Inland, Cave Junction, Grants Pass, Medford and other Rogue Valley communities will remain in USG/Unhealthy through much of the day due to limited air movement. Fires to the north may add additional smoke to SW Oregon's air today.

Fire: Low fire behavior is expected today on Chetco Bar and Miller Complex, with more active fire behavior on the Indigo fire, influencing air across southwest Oregon.

The Chetco Bar Fire is 189,562 and 40% contained.
