Central Oregon Fire Update

           

Central Oregon – No new fire starts to report today in Central Oregon.

 

Central Oregon skies have been very smoky the past few days.  Morning satellite imagery shows smoke drifting into the area from southwest Oregon. We can expect this pattern to continue for the foreseeable future.

 

The Green Ridge Fire is currently 550 acres, and is 30% contained.  The expected containment date has been bumped out to Saturday, August 10th.  Today fire managers continued to have trouble with the southeast corner of the fire, with crews chasing and confining spot fires in that upper portion of the fire area. They were aided by air tankers and helicopters.  Crews will be performing mop-up operations and reinforcing lines on the south side of the fire tonight and tomorrow in preparation for burnout operations as conditions allow. 

 

The public meeting that was held last night to inform local residents of the fire situation was well attended. 

Another community meeting has been scheduled for this coming Friday, August 9th at 6:30 p.m. at the Camp Sherman Fire Hall.
