Rough Patch Complex and Jack Fire Daily Facts

Jack Fire Wildfire
News – 10/4/2021


Monday October 4, 2021, 10:00 am   

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.

·         Crews are making great progress in removal of logs and slash, with increased hauling activity on the 5850 and 4750 roads.

·         In Division A, D, and F firefighters will continue to monitor fire behavior in the uncontained areas and suppression tactics will be taken if needed. There is potential for a minor increase in fire activity this afternoon.

·         Suppression repair objectives are to return the landscape to it’s natural appearance while preventing, minimizing and remediate impacts caused by suppression activities. Suppression repair includes creating water bars, which are used to divert flowing water, to minimize erosion potential in burned areas.      

·         Crews are working to remove fire weakened trees within the fire perimeter and along roadways that could become a safety hazard.

Fire Conditions and Weather

·         Additional cloud coverage will be in the area today, bringing higher humidity. There will be increased wind on the ridge tops.

·         There will be cooler temperatures and increased moisture throughout the rest of the week.

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.
