Cable Crossing Fire Update

The Cable Crossing Fire, located 5 miles east of Glide near Highway 138 East, mile post 23 jumped containment lines today at approximately 5:00 p.m. As aviation and ground resources moved to attack the new spot fire, a wind shift caused the fire to quickly grow out of control. At this time, the fire is estimated at 500 acres and is moving in a southeast direction. Currently, no homes are threatened and no evacuations have been ordered.

Oregon Department of Forestry Incident Management Team 3 (Incident Commander Smith) has been called in to manage the Cable Crossing incident. ODF IMT 3 will arrive on the Cable Crossing Fire tomorrow morning and assume command at 10:00 a.m. The Incident Command Post will be established at the French Creek Ranch near Glide.
