North Star WA-COA-000157. IMT3. 5 miles E of Omak, WA. Start 8/13. Full Suppression. Timber. Cause: Human. 218,138 acres (+0). 95% containment. Minimal fire behavior. Patrol and suppression repair ongoing. No update received.


Lists fires (of any size) that singly utilize Monitor, Confine, or Point Zone Protection suppression strategies, or use Multiple Suppression Strategies (which may also include a Full Suppression component).


Northwest Fire Potential Summary:

Westerly winds will increase in the Columbia Basin and Columbia Gorge on Friday but critical combinations of low humidity and fire danger are not expected. Winds will reverse to northeast or east on Saturday as a different weather pattern moves over Oregon and Washington. This will result in showers and possibly a few thundershowers. Large fire potential remains low.
