Jack Fire Wildfire
News – 10/3/2021

Acres: 24,165
Containment: 83%
Personnel: 4 

Current Situation:

  • A closure area remains in the Rough Patch Complex and Jack Fire areas. Please respect these closures as equipment and firefighters are working along roads in the fire area.
  • Firefighters are working closely with Resource Advisors to develop and prioritize suppression repair activities. Suppression repair objectives are to return the landscape to it’s natural appearance while preventing, minimizing and remediate impacts caused by suppression activities.     
  • Removal of logs and slash from the fire area will be ongoing as firefighters strive to protect the integrity of roadways and the effects of future sedimentation into the waterways.
  • Crews are working to remove fire weakened trees within the fire perimeter that could become a safety hazard.
  • As vegetation begins to dry, smoke may become visible again from the fire area. Firefighters will continue to monitor the fire behavior and suppression tactics will be taken if needed.
  • A Forest Service Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team continues to assess the severity of fire effects across the landscape. https://www.fs.fed.us/naturalresources/watershed/burnedareas.shtml.

Fire Conditions and Weather:

  • Today, we will see the warmest and driest day of the week. The winds will continue to be terrain driven, with little effect of fire behavior.
  • Throughout the rest of the week there will be scattered showers and cloudy conditions.

Closures:

  • The Umpqua and Willamette National Forests and BLM Roseburg District have temporarily closed areas of both Forests due to the Jack Fire, Rough Patch Complex, and Devils Knob Complex. View the closure area orders and maps on https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/closures/7758/.
  • Managing agencies are evaluating the area closure surrounding the fires, with the intent to restore public access to more areas as soon as safely possible. Unstable roads and slopes, fire-weakened trees, rock fall, and firefighter traffic continue to pose risks to the public. Please respect the closure while we work towards restoring access to your public lands.
