Chetco Bar Fire Wildfire
News – 9/23/2017

Smoke: Smoke remains absent in most of the communities and surrounding areas, however isolated areas on the fire continue to produce small amounts of smoke. As fuels dry out and conditions become more favorable for burning the chances of seeing more smoke in the environment is likely. Any smoke produced should be light and disperse well as it moves with the wind.

Fire: Fire containment and suppression actions continue to be successful. The warmer and drier weather pattern will help firefighters identify areas that may still be burning under heavy canopy and brush. Other: As suppression and repair activities continue firefighters are constantly moving around the fire on various roads. Expect heavy traffic when driving near wildfire areas and on narrow mountain roads.
