Central Oregon Fire Update

           

Central Oregon –  One new fire to report this morning, 2 to 3 acres of grass and brush, burning north of the Paulina Highway in the Lost Creek area south of Bonnieview Ranch, crews are working it now. Sunday late afternoon 4 smoke jumpers were dispatched to incident #634, a ¼ acres fire near Lemish Lake, 4 miles west of Crane Prairie Reservoir. Additionally, 4 Rappelers were dispatched to incident #632, a ¼ acre fire near Windigo Lake, 5 miles south of Crescent Lake. Both fires were staffed overnight and they should be completing mop up today. Local IA forces will be checking on all the recent fires to ensure they are out and responding to holdover fires from the recent lightning storms that blanketed the Central Oregon Area over the last week.

 

Sunday’s smoke column to the west of Bend and Sisters is a new fire on the Willamette National Forest along Old McKenzie Pass Highway 242. For current information you may call the McKenzie River Ranger District at (541)822-3381 or (503)-854-4210 or (503)-298-8190. Fire updates will be posted on the Willamette National Forest website at www.fs.usda.gov/willamette.

 

The “Geneva 14” fire about 15 miles northeast of Sisters and 1 mile south of Fly Lake off the 2055 road is on Oregon Department of Forestry protection. Staffing is slowly being released as objectives are met. For current information please call Central Oregon Department of Forestry Information at 503-302-7088.

 

For public and firefighter safety the Area Forest Closure is still in effect within the Green Ridge fire boundary, and roads within the fire perimeter remain closed to public travel. For details and updates please visit the Deschutes National Forest web site http://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/centraloregon/alerts-notices.

 

Breezy westerly winds, 5 to 10 mph, are in the forecast for the afternoons through Wednesday. Relative humidity will decrease a little more each day as temperatures remain in the high 80’s. The potential for thunderstorms returns to the region on Thursday and Friday afternoons and evenings.
