Stouts Fire Update

The Stouts Fire, located approximately 11 miles east of Canyonville near the community of Milo was reported Thursday at 1:00 p.m. Firefighters from the Douglas Forest Protective Association and numerous volunteer fire departments responded to the fire. When firefighters arrived on scene, they found a fast moving fire already several acres in size. Hot, windy conditions combined with very dry fuels caused the fire to grow extremely fast and sparked numerous spot fires in front of the main fire. The intensity of the main fire, combined with the numerous spot fires in front of itself, caused the Stouts Fire to "blow up," going from several hundred acres to approximately 6,000 acres in a matter of hours.

WILDFIRE RISK SOARS IN LANE, LINN COUNTIES

Thu. July 30, 2015

News Release from Oregon Dept. of Forestry - Posted on FlashAlert: July 29th, 2015 3:51 PM
Ongoing drought and warm weather have elevated wildfire danger this summer, and severe conditions forecast for the rest of this week could cause it to soar.

"The potential for fires to start and then grow rapidly will be high due to hot temperatures and low humidity," said Greg Wagenblast, ODF's South Cascade District forester.

Already in Lane and Linn counties, a number of timber companies have closed their lands to the public due to the risk of human-caused fires. Recreationists can learn which corporate forestlands in the district are open by checking the ODF website, www.oregon.gov/odf/FIRE/Closures/Corporate%20Closures.pdf

FIRE PROTECTION AGENCIES SEEK PUBLIC COOPERATION

Thu. July 30, 2015

News Release from Oregon Dept. of Forestry -  Posted on FlashAlert: July 29th, 2015 11:54 AM
High temperatures and threat of lightning forecasted

As the heat returns to the region this week, fire managers are once again spreading the word of caution in efforts to prevent human-caused fires. Fire weather meteorologists are anticipating temperatures in the high 90's and low 100's midweek with a chance of lightning in southern and eastern Oregon arriving Friday. A Red Flag Warning is also in effect for much of the Willamette Valley and southern Oregon calling for hot and dry unstable conditions combined with low fuel moisture levels.

As fire season hits full stride, the chances of fires starting and spreading rapidly are of grave concern.
