Eagle Creek Fire Contained, But Not Yet Out

Incident: Eagle Creek Fire Wildfire
Released: 11/30/2017

Following an official review of Eagle Creek Fire status on November 30, 2017, the fire has been declared 100% contained.

The change reflects a determination made that the fire is not expected to grow beyond its perimeter, and is not the same as officially declaring the fire “out.” At this stage of the fire, no further growth is expected, but “fuels” (timber and other flammable natural materials) may still be smoldering within the fire perimeter.

An incident commander with the U.S. Forest Service is still assigned to the fire and will continue to apprise the situation. Current personnel on the fire are focused on protecting public safety in the closed areas. The Eagle Creek Fire Closure, which includes numerous recreation sites in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and Mt. Hood National Forest, remains unchanged except for Multnomah Falls Lodge and front plaza, which opened yesterday.

More information about the fire closure and post-fire response can be found on the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area website at www.fs.usda.gov/crgnsa.
