Salmon August Complex Update

September 25, 2017

Date Started: August 13, 2017 Total Size: 65,875acres

Cumulative Containment: 75% Total Personnel: 334

Operational update: The emergency closure order for the Salmon-August Complex and forest-wide fire restrictions have been lifted. Forest visitors entering the area need to be vigilant about risks created by the wildfire. A California Campfire Permit is required in order to have a campfire. Visitors in and around the fire perimeters can expect to encounter heavy equipment and fire apparatus as repair efforts continue.

There was minimal fire activity across the fires in the Salmon August Complex yesterday, despite the warming temperatures. Firefighters still contended with smoke and hot spots in the Deep Fire, however none of those areas posed a threat to the control lines. Containment lines along the Salmon River Road, the south side of the Wallow Fire, will continue to be strengthened and patrolled. All other fire areas within the Salmon August Complex are being monitored as firefighters back-haul equipment and trash and identify dozer-lines and hand-lines requiring suppression repair. A suppression repair plan has been developed, with the assistance of cultural and resource advisors from the Klamath National Forest.

The Great Basin Team 7 has had command of the Salmon August Complex fires for almost two weeks. We will be transitioning to a Type 3 organization on Thursday, September 28, 2017. A Type 3 Incident Management Team or incident command organization manages incidents with a significant number of resources, where containment/control is expected after an extended period of time.
