Smoke Outlook for NW Oregon - Willamette Valley Friday, Sept 25

Beachie Creek Fire Wildfire
Announcements – 9/25/2020

Special Statement

This will be the final smoke outlook for Riverside, Beachie

Creek, and Holiday Farm fires.


Rainfall throughout the day will dampen any remaining

smoldering and hot spots. Additional perimeter growth is not

expected with minimal fire behavior.. Many stumps, large logs,

and roots will remain smoldering within the interior of the fire.

As the weather breaks on Saturday, these areas may produce

visible smoke but will not threaten the containment of this fire.

Crews are continuing to work to extinguish all pockets of heat

around the perimeter of these fires. If warm and dry weather

returns, activity and smoke production may increase by midweek

next week.


Rain showers continue to increase the fuel moistures of

smoldering fuels, this will result in negligible visible smoke

outside the fire perimeter until warm weather returns on

Tuesday. As a result, the entire Willamette Valley will see Good

air quality for the next few days. Areas closest to the fire

perimeter may experience moderate smoke impacts in the

evening when temperatures drop and pool pockets of

smoldering fuels under the nighttime inversion.


As property owners return to evacuated sites, here are some

basic things to know about ash to fully protect yourself, your

family, and your pets: wildfire. Stay safe and check
