Smoke forecast

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. These conditions are expected to continue today.

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 will also continue to impact these areas as well. For all communities, southwest transport winds will provide a steady stream of smoke into these areas from fires in Southwest Oregon through Tuesday.
