Eagle Creek Fire - Morning Update 9/22/17 (Eagle Creek Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - Fri, 09/22/2017 - 11:29
Approximate Fire Size: 48,668 acres Approximate Fire Containment: 46% Summary: Fire activity has been minimal due to cooler temperatures and rain. Over the last four days anywhere from 3.5” to 6” of rain fell over the fire area, with heavier rains over the western portion of the fire.Current activities include resource and condition assessments as well as planning and implementing suppression repair efforts. Heavy equipment is on site to assist with repair efforts. Much of this work is dependent on ground conditions as there is the potential to do further damage if heavy machinery operates in extremely wet and muddy terrain. Meanwhile handcrews are “low stumping” and cleaning up large woody debris. Plans include potentially building hand line as a contingency closer to the fire’s eastern edge. This work will only be done if it is safe for firefighters to engage and there are safe escape routes and safety zones.There is still live fire on Shellrock Mountain and elsewhere...
