Chetco Bar Fire News Release

Chetco Bar Air Quality, September 27, 2017

Incident: Chetco Bar Fire Wildfire
Released: 9/27/2017

Smoke: Smoke will remain isolated to areas that still contain heat on various fires. Remaining smoke will flow down drainage at night, and then pool before daytime winds prevail and push the smoke out. Most communities will not see any smoke the next few days, but those that do will experience it worse in the morning hours.

Warmer temperatures are aiding the remaining fire behavior. Most areas that are still active are dead trees, logs, and deep duff layer. Other: An incoming weather system towards this weekend should clear the air-shed of smoke and reduce the remaining active hotspots burning in the interior of the various fires. Smoke should reduce greatly after this weekend and continue to reduce each day afterwards.

This will be the last smoke forecast for Southwest Oregon unless condition dramatically change.
