Fire crews had a productive day on the fire yesterday. Crews improved fire lines and prepped for the incoming weather today.
Today’s objectives will be to continue mop-up inside the fire perimeter while maintaining a secure containment line, and being available for initial attack if other fires occur. Goals for inside the perimeter of the fires will be to mop up 100 feet from the containment line. Crews will continue to monitor for spot fires outside of the fire perimeter.
The fire activity today could be influenced by strong NE winds in the afternoon. These winds along with the higher temperatures will test the fire lines. Winds are predicted to be coming from the northeast 8-11 mph with gusts up to 20 mph and will peak this afternoon around 4. Smoke may become more visible to the public as temperatures rise and cause more active fire behavior.
Forgarty Creek State Park will temporarily remain closed to the public while fire crews are using it for fire camp. The incident command post is located at the Depoe Bay Fire & Rescue station.
