Skyline Ridge Complex Information

Thursday, August 26, 2021

CANYONVILLE, Ore. – Firefighters continue to make good progress on the Skyline Ridge Complex, which is now 97% contained.  86 personnel remain assigned to the incident with the primary mission of patrolling containment lines, mopping up hot spots, back hauling the supplies and equipment that are no longer needed on the fire lines, and finalizing fire suppression repair projects in and around the 19 fires that make up the complex.  Foresters from both private industrial landowners and the Bureau of Land Management are also working in the fire area, assessing damages to their lands.  Resources that are no longer needed on this incident are either being reassigned to other fires in the region or returning to their home units for rest. By Saturday, fire officials with the Skyline Ridge Complex anticipate that only about 40 personnel will be needed on this incident to patrol the fires.

Smoke from the interior portions of the Poole Creek Fire may be visible until the heavy fall rains return to the area. This smoke is being produced by smoldering materials and small pockets of previously unburned fuels within the interior area of the fire. These smokes are being monitored by fire crews but pose little to no threat to containment lines.
