Rough Patch Complex and Jack Fire Daily Fact Sheet

Jack Fire Wildfire
News – 10/5/2021

Current Situation

·         Crews are removing slash and weakened trees from the fire area and fire’s perimeter. Great progress has been made but over 185 miles of suppression repair work remains.  

·         Firefighters will continue to monitor fire activity in the uncontrolled areas as isolated stumps, logs, and deep duff will hold heat.

·         A Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) Team, made up of natural and cultural resource experts are surveying the burned areas. These experts so far have determined that overall, less than one percent of any of the fires resulted in high soil burn severity. Overall, the maps depict a mixed severity burn of moderate, low, and very low/unburned severity. View the maps at https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/maps/7758/

·         A Forest 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.

Fire Conditions and Weather

·         A cold front will arrive in the afternoon bringing cooler temperatures and scattered showers. Ridgetop winds will become stronger with gusts up to 25 mph. There is potential for snow in elevations over 4,500 feet.

·         The cooler temperatures and moisture will remain the trend over the next few days.

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.
