Springfield, OR 97477
Several fires burning on the Willamette National Forest continute to impact neighboring communities. Fire activity could increase today and tomorrow as warm and dry conditions return to the area. However, smoke in the area has limited fire behavior over the last few days and there was limited fire growth yesterday.
The Whitewater fire continues to produce smoke and haze impacting Breitenbush and Detroit. Smoke from the Rebel and Horse Creek Complex Fires continues to impact the communities of Oakridge and Mckenzie Bridge. The Milli Fire could also continue to impact these areas as well. Predominate east winds in the morning will move more smoke into the Detriot, McKenzie Bridge areas, Oakridge and other areas to the west.
