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
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.
