Chetco Bar Air Quality, September 24, 2017

Chetco Bar Fire Wildfire
News – 9/24/2017

Smoke: Light smoke may be seen from burning material near the southwest side of the Chetco Bar wildfire. The burning material consist of large diameter logs and standing dead trees. These areas may continue smoking for multiple days, but should not produce amounts great enough to raise the smoke impacts into the moderate levels for long periods.

Fire: Aggressive mop up and suppression actions continue to decrease the amount of smoke each day. The fires in the region continue towards being fully contained due to the hard work being done on the ground by fire personnel.

Other: The monitor in Brookings is not transmitting, but all manual observations support the rating of good (green) for the next few days. Agness may see a few hours of moderate air quality in the overnight and early morning hours, but the air-shed should clean out by early morning.
