Closed Roads on Rebel Fire August 11, 2017
Incident: Rebel Fire Wildfire
Location: McKenzie River Ranger District, Three Sisters Wilderness, Rebel Creek drainage
Firefighters continue their fire preparation work along Aufderheide Scenic Byway - Forest Service Road 19 (FSR19). This work involves falling dead standing trees, removing lower tree branches, small trees and underbrush.
Due to the Rebel Fire location, potential growth and resistance to control, FSR 19 will be closed just south of the Delta Campground entrance road and just north of the junction of FSR19 and FSR1944 near North Fork trailhead. The road closure points will be staffed with road guards to prevent access.
The Delta Campground and Bruckart Boat launch facilities currently remain open for public use.
