Announcements – 9/4/2018

The Klondike Fire remains active, both along the northern portion south of Agness and in the southern extent to the east of Pearsoll Peak.

Klondike: 109,187 acres and 42% contained

Taylor Creek: 52,839 acres and 95% contained

The Miles Fire continues to produce smoke as interior pockets of unburned fuels ignite under dry and breezy conditions. The Hugo Fire may also produce occasional smoke today as mop up continues.

Smoke

Northeast winds today across the Klondike Fire today will continue to push smoke impacts across the Rogue River-Siskiyou NF and the Brookings area. Other places across the outlook area may see smoke impacts from nearby fires, but overall expect air quality to remain Good. As winds weaken look for smoke impacts to expand northward to include Gold Beach and Agness by Wednesday morning.

Winds will shift from the northeast to south, and then westsouthwest throughout the day on Wednesday. This will begin to push smoke impacts from both the Klondike and Natchez Fires into the Highway 199 and I5 corridors on Wednesday. At least Moderate air quality is expected for many locations, but hours of USG and Unhealthy will be possible.
