Milli Fire
August 31, 2017 Morning Update
The private land within the perimeter once again became active late yesterday afternoon.  Crews patrolled the eastern fireline and found one small spot fire, 20 feet by 20 feet in size. The spot was contained. Firefighters worked through the night to complete a low-intensity burnout on the private land which will strengthen the eastern fire line.

Fuels continue to burn within the fire perimeter which will produce some smoke. Fire behavior consists mostly of creeping and smoldering with a few isolated pockets of unburned trees potentially torching. Firefighters have found minimal hotspots within contained areas of the fire. They will continue to patrol, mop up, and rehab contained areas of the fire.

Clear skies yesterday afternoon allowed a reconnaissance plane to fly over the fire and look for any additional spot fires outside the fireline. No spot fires were found. The west side of the fire continues to burn down slope into the Three Sisters Wilderness and established containment lines. The south side of the fire that is burning into the Pole Creek Fire scar did not significantly grow. All containment lines held even with strong winds yesterday.

Good progress is being made on rehabilitation in and around the contained areas on the fire. Crews, dozers, excavators and wood chippers continue to work to return the fire area, control lines and dozer lines to a more natural state.

Central Oregon’s Northwest Type 2 Incident Management Team (IMT) 8 is working with the Southwest Area Type 1 IMT today in preparation to transition management of the Milli Fire late this afternoon.

Weather is expected to become warmer and drier, with temperatures in the 90’s over the holiday weekend. Air quality is expected to vary in the next few days as several fires continue to burn in the area.

Level 1 and 2 evacuations remain in effect. Call Deschutes County Sheriff’s office at 541-693-6911 with evacuation questions. Current evacuation levels: Level 2– Crossroads subdivision, Edgington Road, Remuda Road, Peterson Burn Road, Wildwing and Three Creeks Road residences. Elk Lake and Hosmer Lake areas  including: Elk Lake Resort, Elk Lake CG, Point CG, Little Fawn CG, Mallard Marsh CG, Sunset View Day Use Area, Beach Day Use Area, and Quinn Meadows Horse Camp  Level 1 – Tollgate subdivision, all areas between OR 242 and US 20, west of Cold Springs Cutoff (Forest Road 1018) which includes Black Butte Ranch.

The Pacific Northwest is experiencing numerous large uncontained fires in Oregon and Washington. The region remains at the highest Preparedness Level (Five). Our fuels (burnable vegetation) are very dry and receptive to fire. As of today, over 736,863 acres have burned in Oregon and Washington. Total Acres 736,863 Oregon 496,208 Washington 240,655 Total Large Fires 102 Oregon 63 Washington 39 Largest Fire in OR: Chetco Bar (131,197) Largest Fire in Washington: Silver Dollar (30,984) Total Costs $283,280,897 Oregon $219,459,970 Washington $63,820,927 Total Firefighters and Support Personnel 9,578 Oregon 7,943 Washington 1,635 Most of Oregon is under fire restrictions so know before you go what fire restrictions are in place. Bring an alternative heat source, such as a propane camp stove as campfires are banned in most areas. Avoid parking or driving on dry grass. Properly dispose of all smoking materials. Keep a shovel and plenty of water in the event you accidentally start a fire. Call 911 if you see a fire. Nationally, 9 out of 10 wildland fires are cause by humans. We have plenty of lightning fires on the landscape right now, so take care to avoid all unwanted, human-caused fires.

8/31/17 Horse Prairie Fire Update

HORSE PRAIRIE FIRE

August 31, 10:00 P.M.

Camas Valley, Oregon – The Horse Prairie Fire is one of 15 large wildfires burning in Oregon. The significance of this relates to the limited number of firefighting resources available to meet suppression objectives. While this fire has over 900 people assigned, there continues to be a need for additional crews and engines. The fire is now estimated at 7,400 acres and remains 15 percent contained.

Firefighters are hopeful that the smoke lifts enough to allow aircraft to begin flying early in the day. While the weather has moderated slightly, the fire remains active. An excessive heat watch with temperatures near 100 degrees is expected over the weekend.
Firefighters on the night shift had some success with burnout operations, removing forest fuels and slowing the fire’s momentum between containment lines and the main fire’s edge.

A Level 3 evacuation notification remains in effect for Lower Cow Creek Road from the end of County Maintenance to Union Creek, including residents living on Doe Creek Road. (See map) The local fire departments have posted a fire engine at all nine affected homes in the evacuation area. Two outbuildings have been destroyed.

Road and area closures also remain in effect in and around the fire area. The public is asked to stay clear of the area for their safety as well as the safety of firefighters.

8/31/2017 Milli Fire AM Update

Milli Fire
August 31, 2017 Daily Update

The private land within the perimeter once again became active late yesterday afternoon.  Crews patrolled the eastern fireline and found one small spot fire, 20 feet by 20 feet in size. The spot was contained. Firefighters worked through the night to complete a low-intensity burnout on the private land which will strengthen the eastern fire line.

Fuels continue to burn within the fire perimeter which will produce some smoke. Fire behavior consists mostly of creeping and smoldering with a few isolated pockets of unburned trees potentially torching. Firefighters have found minimal hotspots within contained areas of the fire. They will continue to patrol, mop up, and rehab contained areas of the fire.

Clear skies yesterday afternoon allowed a reconnaissance plane to fly over the fire and look for any additional spot fires outside the fireline. No spot fires were found. The west side of the fire continues to burn down slope into the Three Sisters Wilderness and established containment lines. The south side of the fire that is burning into the Pole Creek Fire scar did not significantly grow. All containment lines held even with strong winds yesterday.

Good progress is being made on rehabilitation in and around the contained areas on the fire. Crews, dozers, excavators and wood chippers continue to work to return the fire area, control lines and dozer lines to a more natural state.

Central Oregon’s Northwest Type 2 Incident Management Team (IMT) 8 is working with the Southwest Area Type 1 IMT today in preparation to transition management of the Milli Fire late this afternoon.

Weather is expected to become warmer and drier, with temperatures in the 90’s over the holiday weekend. Air quality is expected to vary in the next few days as several fires continue to burn in the area.

Level 1 and 2 evacuations remain in effect. Call Deschutes County Sheriff’s office at 541-693-6911 with evacuation questions. Current evacuation levels: Level 2 Crossroads subdivision, Edgington Road, Remuda Road, Peterson Burn Road, Wildwing and Three Creeks Road residences.

8/31/2017 Umpqua North Complex Update

Umpqua North Complex Update
Fire Information Line (541) 378-6944                                                UmpquaNorthComplex17@gmail.com
Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Recorded Information: (855) 419-2349
Incident: Lightning started dozens of fires across the northern Umpqua National Forest along both sides of Highway 138 East during the week of Aug. 9, 2017. There are currently 14 active fires in the complex, which is located 50 miles east of Roseburg in Douglas County, Ore.

Incident Command:  Unified Command – Alaska Interagency Incident Management Team; Tom Kurth, Incident Commander, Douglas Forest Protective Association; Dan Thorpe, Incident Commander. The California Interagency Incident Management Team, Jay Kurth, Incident Commander, will take over managing the complex at 7:00 a.m. Friday.

Current Size: 25,358 acres estimated total of complex based on an infrared flight on Aug. 30. Containment: 21%. Current Resources:  Crews: 21; Helicopters: 5; Engines: 94; Dozers: 16; Water Tenders: 23; Masticators: 7; Skidgens: 5; Total Personnel:  1,040.

Current Situation:  Firefighters are focused on reinforcing their control lines and contingency lines today as a high-pressure system builds over the Umpqua National Forest and temperatures rise above 100 degrees starting Friday. A high of 104 is forecast for Saturday, along with relative humidity dropping into the 20s. The clear skies associated with this system will promote active burning that will test the work firefighters have done over the past two weeks.

The primary concern for fire managers is the Happy Dog Fire north of Highway 138 East and keeping it from coming back out of the 2008 Rattle Fire scar and impacting the Hwy 138 E corridor. If it spreads back to the south, the areas of Dry Creek, Illahee Flats, Soda Springs, and Slide Creek could be impacted. Another area of concern is the portion of the Happy Dog south of Hwy 138 E. There, burnout operations have removed fuels ahead of the fire along the PacifiCorp powerline and Forest Road 28 to halt its advance toward Oak Nob and further east to the 138 corridor. South along Forest Road 28, firefighters will continue to build contingency lines east of the road to head off the chance of the Brokentooth and Mudd 2 fires advancing further east.

The Happy Dog Fire and the Ragged Ridge Fire have merged into one fire, mainly due to the success of the tactical firing operations along their west flank. This is to keep the fires from spreading to the west into the Steamboat Creek drainage and compromising Forest Road 38. Crews are using heavy equipment to the northeast of these fires to construct control lines but handlines will be needed to tie them together. These efforts are to prevent the Happy Dog Fire from gaining further ground to the northern portions the Umpqua National Forest.

Firefighters in the Devils Canyon area have just about made it around the Devil Fire with their initial saw line and hose lay. Work will continue to improve saw line toward an acceptable contained perimeter. Patrols are still monitoring the nearby Dog Prairie Fire as the steep country and higher elevations have slowed that fire’s growth.

Containment line continues to increase around the Fall Creek Fire as firefighters improve and strengthen the work they have conducted over the past two weeks. Interior pockets of unburned vegetation will continue to burn and will be visible to motorists on Hwy 138 E.

Hwy 138 E remains closed from Mile Marker 47 to 54 because of hazardous conditions caused by the Happy Dog Fire. Fire managers, along with the Oregon Department of Transportation, are re-evaluating the risk along this stretch of the road daily.

Closure Notices:
In addition to the road closure on Hwy 138 E from Mile Markers 47 to 54, the road shoulders and pullouts between Mile Markers 31 to 35 are also closed to provide for public and firefighter safety.  For the latest road closure information, call the Oregon Department of Transportation at 511 or go to https://tripcheck.com/Pages/RCMap.asp#.

The Umpqua National Forest remains closed in areas of the North Umpqua and Diamond Lake Ranger Districts. The North Umpqua River remains closed to boaters and anglers from Boulder Flat Raft Launch to Susan Creek Campground due to falling trees and rolling debris except for a short stretch of river near the Steamboat Inn that is open to fishing. For more information on forest closures see Public Notices at http://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/Umpqua/alerts-notices.
