Wilson Prairie Fire Update
Northwest Interagency Incident Management Team 8, Incident Commander: Doug Johnson
July 31, 2018 - 9:00 A.M.
This will be the last update from the Northwest Interagency Incident Management Team 8 (NWIIMT8). This will be the last on the Wilson Prairie Fire unless conditions change.  The local units will provide any updated information. NWIIMT8 would like to take this opportunity to say “thank you” to the community, cooperators, agency staff, and firefighters for the unwavering support during our management of the Wilson Prairie Fire. 
The transfer of management of the Wilson Prairie Fire is in progress. A Type 4 incident commander (IC), Kristen Marshall, will arrive today to shadow the existing operations.  The proposed schedule is to turn over command of the Wilson Prairie Fire to IC Marshall and her organization on Wednesday morning at 6:00 am. 
Smoke from other fires remains in the local area.  Those with sensitivity concerns should take appropriate precautions.  For more information on air quality please visit: http://www.oregon.gov/DEQ/AQ/Pages/index.aspx 
http://www.airnow.gov/
The Morrow County Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Park, restaurant, and campground remains open, however some OHV trails may be impacted by the fire activity.  Please observe all trail and area closures.
Current Fire Information: Suppression efforts continue to hold the fire within its current footprint.  Mop up progressed with special attention being paid to the Porter Creek area and the green interior islands of unburned fuel, which still contain hot spots and smoldering behavior.  Suppression repair activities continue, which includes water barring (an angled trench, to direct water off the fireline to prevent erosion), removal of hose, and removal of trash from the fire line.  Repairs to OHV trails impacted by fire line construction continue.  The entire firefighter operation briefing may be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sc-6fmeR3as
Acreage: 405, this will be the final reported acreage.
Containment: 75%
Fire Information Center:  Public Line 844-695-6542. Available 8:00 am to 9:00 pm.
Beginning Wednesday please contact: Christie Shaw – ODF – at 541-263-0661 or Darcy Weseman – Umatilla National Forest at 541-215-2224.

Resources:  Total personnel assigned – 422:  3-type 2 IA hand crews, 10-type 2 hand crews, 2-camp crews, 1- light helicopter, 6-engines, 1-dozers, 8-water tenders, 1- ambulance, 3-skidgens, and 103 overhead. Right sizing of the fire suppression resources continues with demobilization of resources in response to operational needs.
Air Operations:  The current temporary flight restriction in place over the fire area will be lifted at 8:00 pm today.
Weather:  Today will be partly cloudy with smoke haze settled into the area.  A Heat Advisory and Fire Weather Watch are both in effect for the area today.  Thunderstorms are predicted starting in the late afternoon and continuing into the night.  If thunderstorms develop, gusts of 40 mph winds are possible.  Max temperatures of 96 degrees with relative humidity to 12%.  Winds will be mostly upslope at 6 - 8 mph switching to the northwest 12-16 mph with gusts to 20 mph.   
Closures: The Umatilla National Forest implemented an area closure; including trails and roads within the vicinity of Bull Prairie Lake and the Wilson Prairie area.  A map and detailed description of the area closure is available on the Umatilla National Forest website at https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/umatilla/alerts-notices/?cid=stelprdb5286768 and on Inciweb.  Forest Service personnel will be located near the campground to assist recreational visitors with alternative locations to camp.  This closure will be evaluated daily for need as a safety precaution to firefighters and the public.  With the transition of management to a Type 4 incident, agency officials will be looking closely at removing the closure as soon as possible. 
The weather forecast for the region is a continued hot and dry trend with poor humidity recovery.  Any spark landing in light fuels (grass) has a 100% potential to start a fire so please follow restrictions to limit potential human wildfire ignitions.
  • Regulated Closure is in effect for ODF’s Central Oregon District.  Specific restrictions, intended to reduce human caused fires, can be found at www.ODFcentraloregon.com.  
  • Phase B of the Public Use Restrictions (PURS) for the Umatilla National Forest are in effect.   For more information regarding these and other restrictions on the Umatilla National Forest visitwww.bmidc.org

7/31/2018 Taylor Creek Fire Update

Taylor Creek Fire Wildfire
News – 21 min. ago
Total size: 26,950 acres Containment: 20%
Firefighters had success Monday and overnight on the south and east flanks of the fire. Evacuation orders were downgraded to Level 2 (Get Ready) for some residences in the area. Mop-up, patrol and work to reinforce control lines continue. Containment increased in the Limpy Creek area and is now at 20 percent for the fire.

Fire activity increased late Monday on the northern area of the fire. As the fire approaches the Rogue River, crews will continue firing operations to secure primary line. Strategic firing operations are used when conditions are favorable. The fire has not crossed the Rogue River.

Multiple aircraft are being used to assist the ground efforts in the northeastern corner of the fire, these resources include aircraft from the Oregon National Air Guard.

The fire is backing down toward Galice Road and firefighters are working to hold the road as a fire line. Crews will continue to prep the Bear Camp Road, with the intent of keeping the fire south of it. Crews continue to scout areas further from the fire.

Management team representatives from the Taylor Creek Fire are in discussion with their counterparts of the Klondike Fire concerning shared communications and tactical operations. The two fires are burning within about 7 miles of each other. The Klondike Fire’s footprint is about 18,000 acres and is about 5 percent contained. Both fires were started on July 15 by lightning.

Evacuations:
Multiple evacuations are in place and some changed yesterday. For the latest information, call the Joint Information center at 541-474-5305 or visit the Josephine County Emergency Management’s Facebook page. Sign up for emergency alerts at www.rvem.org. The Red Cross has established a shelter at Grants Pass High School for residents affected by Level 3 (Go!) evacuations.

Weather and Fire Behavior:
Today will have near critical fire weather conditions. Smoke during the past two days moderated fire behavior. More normal temperatures are predicted for later in the week, with potential for increased winds.

Northwest Fire Weather Summary
A relatively dry upper level trough started a slow move across the region last night, which will cool temperatures to seasonal normals through the work week.  The system brings another chance of afternoon/evening thunderstorms to southern and eastern Oregon and northern Washington today and Wednesday, with thunderstorm chances diminishing Thursday.  We will also get breezy to gusty winds through mountain gaps, the Columbia Gorge and adjacent areas as well as the Kittitas and Wenatchee valleys.  The NWS has advisories out for high winds and low humidity in those areas.  See your NWS fire weather planning forecast for the details in your local area.  Winds will calm down by Friday with zonal flow for the weekend.

Northwest Fire Potential Summary
The thunderstorm threat is highest this afternoon and evening and while the storms will be isolated, fire danger remains very high throughout the region.  Any lightning should be expected to be efficient in igniting fires, which coupled with breezy conditions and dry fuels raises high risk for the development of significant fires.

7/30/2018 Taylor Creek AM Update

Taylor Fire Morning Update - Monday, July 30, 2018

Taylor Creek Wildfire
Total size: 24,965 acres
The Taylor Creek Fire is now being managed separately from the Garner Complex. Chris Schulte’s Pacific Northwest Team 2, a Type 1 Incident Management Team, and Scott Magers’ Oregon State Fire Marshal Blue Team assumed unified command of the Taylor Creek Fire this morning. Oregon Department of Forestry Team 1, led by Joe Hessel, will assume command of the Garner Complex at noon today.


All crews currently working on the Taylor Creek Fire will remain in place. Additional Oregon State Fire Marshal structure protection crews have been moved from the Grave Creek Fire, which nears full containment, to the Taylor Creek Fire, which is approximately 8% contained.


Yesterday’s Activities:

A large plume from the Klondike Fire (burning about 7 miles to the southwest in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness) shaded the Taylor Fire and provided some relief from the hot, dry conditions. Firefighters took advantage of the decreased fire activity by continuing to secure ground on the southeast flank of the fire and crews worked through the night to prevent fire spread toward the Shan and Pickett Creek areas and the community of Galice


Today’s Activities:

The fire remains south and west of the Rogue River. Today, air and ground crews will continue to secure, reinforce, and burn out firelines above Pickett Creek and south of Galice Road. State Fire Marshal crews will continue preparing homes ahead of the fire by clearing brush and setting up hoselines in the Limpy and Shan Creek areas while also mopping up around structures in already secured areas.


Evacuations:

Multiple evacuations are in place and “Ready, Set, Go!” Evacuation Levelsare changing on a daily basis. For the latest update visit the Josephine County Emergency Management’s Facebook page or sign up for emergency alerts at www.rvem.org. The Red Cross has established a shelter at Grants Pass High School for residents affected by Level 3 (Go!) evacuations.

Weather and Fire Behavior:
The heat wave is predicted to continue, possibly cresting on Wednesday followed by slightly cooler, more typically seasonal temperatures beginning Thursday.

Northwest Fire Weather Summary
Hot, dry weather continues for the geographic area today under upper level high pressure. There is a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and evening along the crest of the Cascades and east. An upper level trough moves across the region through mid-week bringing another chance of afternoon/evening thunderstorms to northern Washington and eastern Oregon tomorrow and Wednesday ahead of the trough.  Cooler temperatures will move across behind the trough, along with breezy to gusty winds.  See your NWS fire weather planning forecast for the details in your local area.

Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Fire danger remains very high and continues to climb over most of the region. Even moderate amounts of lightning could result in enough ignitions to elevate the risk of large, costly fires.  A weather pattern shift mid-week could bring potential problems with more wind and instability to much of Washington and sections of central and eastern Oregon. Winds behind the trough could elevate fire behavior for new and existing fires.
