Douglas Complex Highest Priority for Resources
The Douglas complex of fires has the highest priority for resources of any of the fires currently active in southern Oregon. The fires are being staffed by 3,080 firefighters who have been able to establish containment lines around 16 percent of the 38,406 acre burn.
In that area the rails and trestles for the CORP railroad are being repaired to get the trains moving again.
A public meeting is scheduled for tomorrow evening at 6:30 in the Wolf Creek Park to update residents on the fire status and evacuations.
The Big Windy complex is now 10,832 acres and the 1,159 fire fighters assigned to the blaze are continuing to install indirect attack lines.
The Labrador Fire, northwest of Cave Junction is still listed at 2020 acres after breaks in the clouds allowed helicopters to attack hot spots and help contain the flames. The 366 Firefighters have completed the contingency lines and remain on scene to protect the Oak Flat structures.
The Brimstone fire is completely contained and many resources have been assigned to other complexes. 136 firefighters supported by two helicopters and several engines are continuing mop up operations.
