Incidents Previously Reported: 1
Fifteen Mile OR-CGF-000160. ICT3. Unified Command (BLM/Municipal). 6 miles east of The Dalles, OR. Start 6/30. Full Suppression. Cause: human. 3,400 acres (+600). 80% containment. Grass. Residential structures threatened. Values at risk include residences and structures, ranches, and Celilo Indian Village.

None currently reported.
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 and lower RH will continue east of the Cascades in the Columbia Basin and Columbia Gorge today and continue through the weekend. Lightning chances increase today over portions of southern and eastern Oregon, but the coverage and amount is not enough to merit a high risk in these areas. The overall potential for large fires remains low across the Northwest.
