Chetco Bar Fire Declared 100% Contained

Chetco Bar Fire Wildfire
News – 11/4/2017

Contact: Chamise Kramer, Public Affairs Specialist (541) 618-2051 SW Oregon—The Chetco Bar Fire has been declared 100% contained, effective November 2, 2017. The announcement comes as more wet weather moves into the southwest Oregon area, bringing rain and, at higher elevations, snow.

Additionally, the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest has made documents related to the Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) effort available to the public via the RRSNF’s website. People can now access both the full BAER report, and the Specialist Reports that informed that document. (The public should be aware that the Specialist Reports document is a 163-page PDF document, and may take some time to download on slower internet connections.)
