Current Situation

  • Large logs will continue to smolder and burn where they are protected in the understory from the precipitation that has fallen on the fire.  
  • Suppression related repair work on the 5850 Road with heavy equipment continues. These actions include processing logs, removing slash and repairing roadways.
  • Crews are actively chipping slash on the 3821 Road, removing debris from the ditches and roads to prevent erosion. 
  • With the relocation of the large horizontal grinder, repair work has sped up and become more efficient. 42.6 miles of repair work has been completed.
  • Chipping operation in the Johnson Meadow area will be completed today and crews will progress south.
  • On the west side of Rough Patch, near 2358 Road, hand crews are repairing dozer line where the terrain is too steep for heavy equipment.

Fire Conditions and Weather

  • Last night the fire and burned areas received a dusting of snow with 3/10ths of an inch of precipitation.
  • Cool, damp weather will keep fire behavior at a minimum.
  • Cooler temperatures and moisture will continue through 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.
