The combination of rising fire danger and lightning will be most focused in Central and South Central Oregon which have been designated as at High Risk for large wildfires for late Sunday through Monday. Monday night and Tuesday a cooling trend with increasing westerly winds will set in. Initial attack activity for the region will likely increase into the moderate category over the next few days.

6/14/2017 Rhoades Fire Contained



Rhoades Canyon Fire Contained

Central Oregon – As of this evening the Rhoades Canyon Fire, located 3 miles east of Clarno, Ore., is fully (100%) contained.

Most crews and other firefighting resources will be released from the fire at 6:30 p.m. this evening. Local county and rural fire protection firefighting resources and BLM firefighters and engines will continue to mop-up and patrol the fire over the next several days.

The final acreage for the fire, which burned primarily in brush and grass, is estimated at 15,200 acres. At the height of the fire almost 100 personnel were assigned to the fire, with crews, engines and aerial resources.

With ongoing heat over the weekend, fire managers warn that fuels are drying rapidly and the public needs to be taking extra precautions with campfires and avoid driving and parking cars on dry grasses. Lightning is expected following the weekend, which will likely result in several natural fire starts and will keep firefighters busy.
