Cable Crossing Fire Evening Update – 8/04/2015 PM


The Level 1 evacuation notice has been lifted for the Cable Crossing Fire for residents between the Peel Store and the Wolf Creek Trailhead on Little River Road. The evacuation notice has also been lifted along highway 138, in the vicinity of Evergreen Lane to Honey Creek Road.

In addition, residents are invited to stop by Glide Fire Department on Wednesday evening between 7-8 p.m. to visit with firefighters in an open house format. Volunteers from the Red Cross will be on hand to hand out cold drinks, snacks and emergency preparedness information.

The fire area and forest roads remain closed to the public. Highway 138 remains open with the aid of flaggers.

The cooler weather of the last few days allowed firefighters to gain momentum through mop up operations. Due to better mapping, the fire is now known to be at 1,800 acres and 40 percent contained.

The Fire Team and Douglas Forest Protective Association extend thanks and appreciation to Glide residents for their support and cooperation throughout this event.

Media Advisory: This is the last evening update for the incident. Daily updates will be sent out for the duration of the incident.
