7/8/2017 Ana Fire Update

The South Central Oregon Fire Management Partnership (SCOFMP) is currently responding to a fast-moving wildfire near Summer Lake, Ore. The Ana Fire is reported at 947 acres and is located between milepost 64 – 71 on Highway 31. One outbuilding has been reported lost. Multiple agencies have deployed fire resources to the incident and are actively suppressing the blaze with air tankers, helicopters, engines, dozers and hand crews.

The Ana Fire is burning in steep, rocky terrain and is being driven by gusty downslope winds creating challenging conditions for fire crews in the area. Additional resources are being mobilized tonight and tomorrow to strengthen the suppression efforts. Approximately 150 Firefighters are working to protect structures in the area and minimize further spread south along Highway 31.

Road travelers on Highway 31 between Summer Lake and Paisley should be aware of decreased visibility due to smoke, intermittent road closures, and emergency response vehicles in the area. Additional information will be disseminated as it becomes available.

The South Central Oregon Fire Management Partnership is an interagency fire management program that provides comprehensive wildland fire service to south central Oregon and northwest Nevada. The partnership strives to achieve a more efficient, effective and integrated interagency fire management program for all participating agencies on the lands administered and protected by each agency.

Participating agencies include: Fremont-Winema National Forest, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Lakeview District, Sheldon-Hart Mountain National Wildlife Refuge Complex, Klamath Basin Wildlife Refuge Complex, Crater Lake National Park and state lands protected by the Klamath-Lake District of the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF).
