Umpqua National Forest Amends Area Closure for Devils Knob Complex

Devils Knob Complex Wildfire
News – 10/8/2021


EMERGENCY FIRE AREA CLOSURE

ORDER AMENDED ON UMPQUA NATIONAL FOREST

AS WEATHER DECREASES FIRE ACTIVITY

ROSEBURG, OR. – October 8th, 2021 – Closure areas within the Umpqua National

Forest and neighboring Willamette National Forest have been diminished in size due to

progress made by Incident Management Teams assigned to local fires, as well as recent

precipitation, lower temperatures and higher humidity. Order No. 06-15-00-21-453

replaces Order No. 06-15-00-21-449 and is effective October 8, 2021 and ending May

9, 2022 unless rescinded sooner. Prohibiting public access to areas still closed is

required for public safety as firefighters utilize direct and indirect suppression tactics

on the Jack Fire, Rough Patch Complex and Devil’s Knob Complex.

This amendment supersedes Order No. 06-15-06-21-449.
