ODF Fire Report for Monday, Oct. 5, 2020

Posted on October 5, 2020

Oregon Dept. of Forestry – 10/05/20 10:43 AM

SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Forestry is closely tracking major fires in Oregon, down from 17 originally (see table below for details). Fires are removed from the list when they are 100% lined and fire managers are confident in their progress toward containment.

Five of the six major fires still on the landscape have burned 100,000 acres or more in Oregon. One of those massive fires, Lionshead, is the sixth largest fire of the past 100 years in Oregon at 204,412 acres. Lionshead is the only one of these major fires that showed any growth in size Sunday – just 27 acres. Most posted double-digit gains in containment over the weekend. Yesterday also saw no new fires reported anywhere in the state.

Remember that fire season isn’t over yet, which means backyard burning and other restrictions are still in effect on ODF-protected lands. Check the public fire restrictions map to see current restrictions for your area.
