Fire Information: (541) 553-8190
SIZE: 9,225 acres
ASSIGNED PERSONNEL: 180
INCIDENT COMMANDER: Luther Clements, Type III
The fire grew in size yesterday but fire crews made good progress in building line and securing the perimeter of the fire. One area of concern today is on the northwest portion of the fire perimeter where the fire crossed the Warm Springs River. Last night, crews made good progress on securing this portion of the fire. If this area holds today, the fire may be near 100% containment by tomorrow.
The operational plan for today is to continue securing fire line perimeter with special emphasis on the northwest portion of the fire. Structural protection is still in place for residences in the Culpus Bridge area.
The Webster Flat road near the Wolf Point subdivision and Hwy 8 east of the Kah-Nee-Ta Resort are still closed to the general public.
