High Cascades West Update September 21 (High Cascades Complex Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - Thu, 09/21/2017 - 12:54
High Cascades Complex, West Zone, September 21 UpdateThe rain continued to fall on the Broken Lookout and Pup Fires yesterday. Overall, the Broken Lookout Fire received about 1.8 inches of rain and the Pup Fire, which is slightly higher in elevation, received approximately 2.25 inches. Even though snow levels dropped to as low as 5,300 feet, no snow fell on the fire area. More rain showers are expected today, but rainfall amounts will most likely be less than 1/10th inch. A warming trend is predicted to begin Friday which could bring dry weather for up to ten days. While the change in weather has reduced fire activity in exposed fuels, heat that lies beneath the ground may still hold potential for increased fire activity. With the recent low temperatures and high precipitation amounts, it is possible that fire behavior will remain muted in spite of the drying trend. To remain on the safe side, however, firefighters are proceeding with their work, preparing roads as fire breaks if...
