Current Situation

  • Loaded dump trucks will be hauling chips down to Glide. Please be aware of heavier traffic on Highway 138.
  • Crews are canvassing the fire area and retrieving equipment from suppression work.
  • While conditions allow, an average of eight to ten miles of repair is being completed daily. 
  • Road 23 has hand crews repairing dozer line, roads and installing water bars to prevent erosion.
  • There has been an influx of personnel this week as large equipment, drivers, operators, and contractors are arriving to help with the suppression repair.

Fire Conditions and Weather

  • Favorable weather and successful suppression action has reduced fire behavior to isolated smoldering in heavy fuels.
  • Continued cool temperatures for today but a few degrees warmer than yesterday. Mostly sunny skies except for some early fog in the valleys. Winds will be light out of the west.
  • Cooler temperatures and moisture will continue through the week with more precipitation arriving around Sunday.

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.
