On June 23, 2024, command of the Cottage Grove – Lane 1 Fires was transferred to the North
Carolina Forest Service Complex Incident Management Team.
The Cottage Grove – Lane 1 fires consist of the following fires for a total of 4005 acres: Lane 1
(1090 acres), Clark 900 (841 acres), 225 (610 acres), Jack Saddle (818 acres), Puddin (110 acres),
Adams Mountain (162 acres), and Mineral/White Creek (374 acres). The Lane 1 Fire is
considered 10% contained, while all other fires are 0% contained. Percent containment represents
sections of fire line that pose no escape risk without further action from firefighters. Over 200
personnel are assigned to these fires in operational and overhead capacities.
Efforts today continued in securing fire line on the north side of the Lane 1 fire and continued
scouting on the remaining fires for potential fire line locations.
Closures: Due to the wildfires, the Umpqua National Forest has issued Forest Order No. 06-15-24-03 and
Forest Order No. 06-15-02-24-01 that can be found at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/umpqua/alertsnotices/?

UKIAH, Ore. – Overnight, firefighters faced heightened fire activity as they chased and fought areas of the fire that crossed the line on
the
southeast corner and southern head of the fire. Crews shifted resources to focus efforts to minimize spread.

“Even though it’s cooler at night, thermal layers of air above and within the canyons can trap heat and create localized flare ups. It can
be
counterintuitive to the public,” said Operations Section Chief Aaron Whiteley. “From day one on the fire, the topography and weather
has
thrown everything it can at us. That’s the same story for a lot of the current fires in this region. Our firefighters are doing an amazing
job.”

Elsewhere on the fire, night shift crews patrolled the fire, prepped firing operations and tied in dozer and hand line. Today, firefighters
will focus
on the southern head of the fire near 6 Mile Creek and southeast corner of the fire.

The Monkey Creek and Boneyard fires are nearly merged and continue to grow towards each other. ODF’s Team 1 and Team 3 have
been
coordinating with each other to align objectives to manage the fire together.

Crews will continue mop-up operations and patrolling on the 4,485-acre North Fork Owens Fire, which stands at 40% containment (the
complex stands at 5% containment). Division resources will patrol the perimeter overnight and support local initial attack for any new
starts.

The Battle Mountain Complex consists of the North Fork Owens and Monkey Creek Fires – two of 17 fires in northeast Oregon that
started in
the late afternoon and evening of July 17, 2024. The Snake Fire merged with the Monkey Creek Fire on July 22, 2024. Officials will
designate
a fire complex to manage them under a single organization to improve efficiency and simplify incident management processes.

The Big Horn fire is burning near the town of Bickleton in Klickitat County, Washington. The fire started at approximately 1:07 PM on
Monday July 22nd,2024, and was driven by windy and dry conditions.

Overnight firefighting operations and favorable humidity levels led to slowing the spread of the fire on the west flank along the Pine
Creek. The fire continues to move to the northwest corner and the west flank, towards the town of Bickleton. At approximately 12:30 PM
this afternoon, the Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office released new information regarding evacuations. Some areas have been
downgraded in evacuation level. South of Six Prong and Six Prong Extension to Alderdale Road has been downgraded to level 2.

Alderdale Road to Klickitat County line is downgraded Level 1. To view the new evacuation maps, you can find them on the Klickitat
County Emergency Management website and Facebook page.

Today’s focus for firefighting operations has been to install dozer lines, increase of air operations and secure the west flank of the fire.
We continue to protect values at risk including lives, property and utility infrastructure.

Road Closures: East Road is closed from the Town of Bickleton south to Hale Rd.


Evacuation Levels: See attached Klickitat County Emergency Management Evacuation map.

Weather and Fire Behavior: Sunny and dry conditions continue today with increase wind gusts. Calm winds will increase into gusty
conditions by this afternoon.

Smoke: While there are no current air quality alerts for Klickitat County, communities close to active wildfires could see air quality
worsen as the fire and wind conditions change. For more information on smoke and air quality, please visit: Washington Smoke
Information (wasmoke.blogspot.com)


Shelter: There are no shelters currently. If you need shelter, please call Klickitat County Dispatch at 509-773-4545.

MONUMENT, Ore. – Firefighters were able to make good progress overnight, completing bulldozer and handline on the southern
portion of
the Boneyard Fire closest to the town of Monument, as well as bulldozer line around the majority of the Courtrock Fire. This work is
extremely
important ahead of Wednesday’s day shift, with conditions once again expected to work against firefighters.
Overnight, the National Weather Service issued Red Flag Warning for the southeast portion of the Boneyard Fire and all of Courtrock
due to
expected thunderstorms with strong winds and abundant lightning. This goes into effect at noon on Wednesday, and ends at 11 p.m.
Winds
may be erratic and are expected to influence fire behavior; firefighters are aware and prepared for the potential increase in fire activity
and will
respond to any new lightning-caused fire starts nearby.
Today, resources on the Courtrock Fire will be working to complete the last few portions of line, which will stop the fire’s growth. On the
Boneyard Fire, work continues north and west of Monument, with line-strengthening. Fire hose will be constructed in these areas today
to
allow for better access to water. On the northwestern portion, much of the same work is continuing.
To the northeast side, resources are engaged. On the southeast side, firefighters continue to build on line that has been established; a
lot of
work in these areas is providing protection to homes in the area. To the east, the Boneyard Fire continues to be on the path of merging
with
the Monkey Creek Fire; Team 1 is coordinating with ODF Team 3, assigned to that incident, as these fires close in on each other.
For Wednesday’s day shift, 490 personnel are assigned to the Boneyard and Courtrock Fires, including 14 20-person crews, 13
bulldozers,
seven tree fallers, eight water tenders and 24 engines, including three structural task forces from the Oregon State Fire Marshal
(OSFM).
Another task force from OSFM will be arriving later today, along with additional resources ordered by Team 1 that will be strategically
placed
on the fire line. For aircraft, one Type one, one Type 3 and two Type 2 helicopters are assigned to the fire, and they will be used as
soon as
visibility increases.

PUBLIC MEETING Wednesday July 24, 7 PM
KELLER COMMUNITY CENTER
FIRE ACTIVITY: Wednesday, the winds will be 5-9 mph from the SW starting about 10am. Gusts will be up to 20 mph after 10 am.
Thursday,there will be cooler temperatures, however 7-13 mph winds will be westerly and increase to 16-21 in the afternoon with gusts
up to
35 mph.
Fire Behavior Analyst Eric Trimble said “Due to the forecasted weather,dry fuels, and topography, there is a high probability that the fire
will
impact the communities in and around Keller, Washington.” Based on computer modeling, this may happen in the next two or three
days.
Swawilla Fire
The Swawilla Fire has progressed down to State Highway 21 but is holding on the Old Swawilla Road on the west shoulder of the fire.
The fire
remains active on the east side and has made it to French Johns Lake. There will be a focus onstructure assessment and protection
along the
affected Hwy 21 corridor. On the north and west side of the fire, firefighterswill try to extend existing roads and older firelines, which will
reduce
the amount of new fireline.
Air support has been limited because of low visibility due to smoke. However, when visibility allows, a Type 1 and Type 3 helicopters
have
been used to assist with fire suppression. In addition, an infra-red flight was conducted, which assists with mapping the fire perimeter.
Night crews conducted a swing shift Tuesday night and will be conducting full nightshifts as long as it is needed, and fire weather
makes it
necessary to do so.
An evacuation center has been opened at the Lake Roosevelt High School gymin Coulee Dam.
With the increase in people and resources to fight the fire, the firefighters will bemoving some of their equipment from the camp in
Keller to
Owhi Flats near theintersection of Cache Creek Road and the Agency Cutoff Roads. Fire suppression crews will continue efforts in the
Keller
area.

With warm dry conditions persisting over the fire area, the Cat Rock Fire north of Prineville in Crook County remains at an estimated
219 acres. The forecasted weather shows temperatures remaining in the mid 90s with light winds from the northeast. These conditions
aren’t expected to cause control issues but may cause smoldering of unburned fuel within the fire perimeter. Fire containment is
currently estimated at 30 percent.

The Central Oregon Type 3 Incident Management team is in place, with approximately one hundred firefighters on the ground. Today
fire personnel continue to protect structures along the McKay Creek corridor and east of the McKay Creek Road. In addition, crews and
engines continue mopping up the fire perimeter and hot spots.

Infrared flights using an Unmanned Aircraft System (a drone) were conducted by Crook County Sheriff’s Department. The collected
images will be utilized to identify and address any areas of concern. Crook County law enforcement, in consultation about fire
conditions with ODF, reduced evacuation levels to a Level 1 (Get Ready) starting today on McKay Creek Road near the Cat Rock
intersection all the way to the Dry Creek Road intersection.

The fire’s cause is still currently under investigation.

A significant change in weather arrives today. There is a red flag warning, with strong winds and thunderstorms expected. Wind may
become
erratic due to a directional wind shift where fire behavior may increase. A Remote Automatic Weather Station (RAWS) was installed
near the
Wenatchee Guard Station in order to receive site specific weather data. Residents are encouraged to be aware of weather alerts and
changing conditions.

A community meeting took place at Bartlett Lane-Union Park in the Grouse Flats area yesterday evening where local residents
discussed the
current fire environment with incident officials.

CURRENT STATUS:
Crews continue to engage the fire directly and indirectly, day and night. To the southwest, crews are focusing on the Grouse Flats area
and
have been working south of 4039 road system along the Forest Service and private boundary, adding new dozer and hand lines.
Successful
tactical ignition operations were accomplished last night near the primitive 050 road near Hansen Ridge in order to limit eastern
expansion of
the fire perimeter. Moving the incident helibase from Lewiston to Anatone is complete. This move puts air assets closer to the fire and
reduces
flight time.

FIRE BEHAVIOR AND WEATHER:
A red flag warning is in effect, with possible lightning starting in the afternoon and lasting into the evening. Localized wind gusts may
reach
speeds of 40 to 50 mph. Temperatures will be in the mid 90s with relative humidity in the mid teens. A cold front will begin to move in
during
the next few days, dropping the temperature and increasing humidity levels tomorrow.

Firefighters continue to discover new fires resulting from a lightning storm July 16. In the past 24 hours another 8 fires totaling an
estimated 62
acres have been identified and added to the Diamond Complex, on the Diamond Lake Ranger District of the Umpqua National Forest.

Currently there are 20 fires totaling an estimated 3,811 acres in the Diamond Complex, with 278 personnel assigned. The Complex is
3%
contained. All fires are under a full suppression strategy. Firefighters are directly attacking the fires’ edge where access and firefighter
safety
allow, and implementing indirect strategies using constructed control lines, and utilizing natural barriers where access issues and safety
concerns prevent direct attack.

The fires comprising the Diamond Complex are: Pine Bench, 1,472 acres, and 0% contained, north of Hwy 138 near Dry Creek; Trail,
827
acres and 5% contained, east of Hwy 138 on the west slope of Mt. Thielsen; Lemolo, 518 acres and 0% contained, north of Lemolo
Lake on
Bunker Hill; Pig Iron, 27 acres and 25% contained, Pig Iron Mountain north of Hwy 138; Watson, 144 acres and 0% contained, north of
Hwy
138 on Watson Ridge, Brodie, 95 acres and 0% contained, about 5 miles south of Hwy 138 and south of Devils Canyon; Trep, 101
acres and
0% contained, about 4 miles south of Hwy 138; Garwood, 5 acres and 65% contained, about 3 miles southwest of Mt. Bailey; Slide, 0.1
acres
and 90% contained, northeast of Pine Bench; Potter, 372 acres, north of Hwy 138 about 2 miles southeast of Potter Mt.; Ooya, 123
acres,
north of Hwy 138 about 1 mile northeast of Bird Point; Clearwater, 7 acres and 90% contained, south of Hwy 138 about 5 miles
northwest of
Diamond Lake; Elephant, 0.7 acres and 0% contained, 2 miles southwest of Lemolo Lake; Lost Bear, 5 acres and 0% contained, 2
miles
south of Hwy 138, and Lost, 12 acres and 0% contained, 4 miles south of Hwy 138. The 8 newest fires totaling 62 acres are widely
scattered
and have not been named.

Nationally and in the Pacific Northwest, fire activity is putting an extreme demand on firefighting resources. This means that firefighters
must
carefully prioritize and efficiently utilize available resources to protect values at risk. The highest priority will remain public and firefighter
safety
and protecting infrastructure and homes.

Yesterday, Northwest Team 7 continued active suppression on the Trail Fire. Afternoon winds increased fire behavior on the northwest
flank,
pushing the fire into a previous burn scar in the Mt. Thielsen Wilderness where the fire lost intensity. On the Lemolo fire, fire line is
established
on the east and northeast of the 700 road. Lower humidity and higher wind speeds contributed to increased fire activity. Two helicopters
dropped water to slow the fire. The Ooya and Potter fires are showing moderate growth, as firefighters develop a strategy to contain
these
fires when resources become available. On the Pig Iron fire, work continues to get the fire into patrol status. Access has been
established to
the Watson fire and a dozer is working the fire. Firefighters worked to keep the Pine Bench fire west of Forest Road 4775, and
successfully
suppressed several spot fires. Several of the newly identified fires were successfully attacked and contained.

Today, active suppression continues with the Lemolo, Trail, Pig Iron and Pine Bench fires as priorities. Work will continue to get water
delivery
and fire line established on the Watson Fire.

Weather: Today will be slightly cooler with slightly higher humidity. Exposed, higher elevation fires will see gusty westerly winds. Very
dry
forest fuels and steep terrain will contribute to potentially active fire behavior.

Today’s weather will lead to extreme fire behavior and growth. A Red Flag Warning has been issued for severe thunderstorms and will
be
followed by a Flash Flood Watch. Thunderstorm wind gusts may reach 75 mph and are expected to directly impact the Durkee Fire
footprint.
Burned areas are more susceptible to landslides, mudslides, flash floods and debris flow. The amount of rainfall is not known at this
time, but
15/100 of an inch of precipitation in 15 minutes could be enough to cause debris flows.
The Malheur County Sheriff’s Office and the Baker County Sheriff’s Office have issued evacuations for multiple areas. Residents in
Level 3
Evacuations “GO NOW”, should leave immediately. Residents should not return to their property until evacuation levels have been
removed.
Carry enough supplies to support you and your family for multiple days. A real time map of fire evacuations can be found at the State of
Oregon Fire Dashboard.
Weather and fire behavior could impact transportation, power transmission, cell service and other utilities. Monitor these resources for
additional information.

The Durkee Fire is located west of Interstate 84 (I-84). The Thompson Fire, a convergence of lightning fires that started near Thompson
Creek
on July 22, is located east of I-84. Both have grown rapidly with the persistent high temperatures, strong winds, and extremely dry fuels.
Firefighters worked overnight to maintain primary and secondary firelines and to support structure protection. No strategic firing
operations
were initiated. Today, wildland firefighters are anticipating the extreme weather event. They will remain strategically placed around the
fire
area for when the extreme weather arrives and engage when safe to do so. Protecting life of the public and firefighters is the highest
priority of
the incident.
Oregon State Fire Marshal task forces will work to support communities around the fire perimeter.
Yesterday, air resources were limited due to poor visibility and high winds. Air resources are expected to be limited or grounded today
due
extreme weather.

CURRENT SITUATION: Cooler temperatures on Tuesday reduced fire behavior and overall fire growth on the Easy Fire in the
morning. Fire
activity increased Tuesday night producing single and group tree torching along with a visible plume of smoke. The fire is burning in
extremely
steep terrain with large dense timber, abundant dead trees and ground vegetation. The fire continues to move slowly down slope
towards
State Route 20 (SR 20) North Cascades Highway.

Yesterday, helicopters continued to assist firefighters with water bucket drops to slow the spread of the fire. Crews set up structure
protection
sprinkler systems around Easy Pass Trailhead and established sites to provide water for containment line hoses. Firefighters also
constructed
containment lines connecting into a previous burn scar on the northern side of the Easy Fire. Rolling rock, falling trees, and active fire
near the
highway continues to necessitate a closure on SR 20 to protect the public from hazards associated with fire behavior and suppression
tactics.
Crews are felling dead trees between the active fire edge and SR 20 to reduce the fire spread toward the highway.

TODAY’S ACTIVITIES: Firefighters will bolster the indirect fireline on the northern section of Easy Fire. Crews may conduct chipping
operations to remove fallen trees across State Route 20. Additionally, firefighters will continue felling dead trees above and parallel to
State
Route 20 which will help with removing hazards to the highway.

WEATHER: Temperatures tomorrow will continue to cool with highs in the high 80s and low 90s with mild Northwest winds around
6mph.
Today will be drier then yesterday, however it is expected cooler and moist air will move over the fire tomorrow.

EVACUATIONS: There are no evacuations in place for the Easy Fire. Anyone recreating in the area should be vigilant about being
aware of
surroundings and stay out of closed areas. Please visit https://t.ly/QoH9w for more information about evacuation levels.

CLOSURES: State Route 20 is closed in both directions between Granite Creek (MP 148) and Easy Pass Trailhead (MP 157).

The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest has closures in place for trails within the fire area: https://bit.ly/EasyFireClosures. This
closure
includes a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail. Campfires are prohibited. There is a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) in place over the
fire:

Falls Fire: Containment lines continued to hold along southern portions of the fire perimeter. Increased containment along the southern
flank
has allowed resources to be re-directed to more active areas of the fire. These areas include the upper northeast corner, near FSR 68
and FS
47, the areas in and adjacent to the community of Izee; the northern flank near the Gilbert Ridge area; and the upper southeast corner
near
the Myrtle Park Meadows and Gold Hill area.

In the northwest corner of the fire, firefighters continued to hold and mop-up line below the western slopes of Burnt Mountain along FSR
4785
near Coral Creek south and east to FSR 47 near the junction with FSR 3150. Construction of secondary contingency (backup) dozer
line has
been completed to the northwest near Snow Mountain along FSR 4781 and also north and south off FSR 4781 in the Snow Mountain
area.
Crews continued to connect fireline back into FSR 3150 in the northeast corner of the fire. The road will be used as an anchor for
conducting
tactical burnouts. In the northeast corner, crews continue to hold and mop-up established control lines. Work will also continue further
east on
the 3150 preparing it to use as a control line, including using it as an anchor for conducting tactical burnouts. Firefighters will scout for
additional opportunities to establish a continuous secondary control line running east to west, north of the fire. In the northwest corner,
crews
will continue to hold and mop-up established control lines. Yesterday, the majority of OSFM Task Forces remained in patrol status for a
second day in the Izee and Red Hill areas. Reports from these crews are positive, noting a reduced threat to structures in these areas.
Two
OSFM engines will remain assigned to these areas to patrol and monitor fire line near structures.

The northeast corner of the fire remains active. Firefighters will continue to hold and mop up areas adjacent to the FSR 31 south of
Myrtle
Park Meadows, and work on tying the fire back into the FSR 31. In the northwest corner of the fire, firefighters continued to hold and
mop-up
line below the western slopes of Burnt Mountain along FSR 4785 near Coral Creek south and east to FSR 47 near the junction with
FSR
3150. Structural and wildland crews are coordinating to protect structures and mitigate risk to the Gold Hill and Silvies Valley areas.
There are
structural crews in placed along the Hwy 395 corridor, providing protection to structures on both the east and west sides of the highway.

Patrol and mop-up operations will continue along the south half of the fire perimeter – the area spanning from the southwest perimeter
of the
fire to near the upper northwest perimeter. One structure engine will patrol the Red Hill area. Further north, away from the fire perimeter,
construction will continue on a planned secondary contingency line along FSR 37 just west of Hwy 395 in the Fisk Gulch area. This
secondary contingency line is part of an alternate plan and will run east to west using portions of FSR 37 and FSR 31.

Thanks to the combined efforts of OSFM and wildland resources, the structural threat has gradually declined in stable areas of the Falls
Fire.
However, the threat remains present in portions of both the Falls and Telephone Fires. Structural protection needs will continue to be
evaluated daily and resources will be shifted in alignment with the incident needs.

The incident management teams assigned to the Homestead Complex and Diamond Complex will hold a community meeting tonight to
provide updates on their respective fires and answer questions from community members. The meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. in the Old Glide
Middle School Gym, 301 Glide Loop. The teams intend to stream the meeting live on the Diamond Complex Fire Information Facebook page.
The seven confirmed fires in the Homestead Complex now total a combined 910 acres based on aerial infrared mapping. About 230 people
are assigned to the complex with more arriving today.

The Horse Heaven Creek Fire (258 acres) was the most active fire in the complex on Tuesday. Crews were working on both direct and indirect
containment lines when fire activity intensified, and they switched to indirect tactics. A helicopter attempted to assist firefighters with water
drops but was unable to fly into the area due to thick smoke. Crews will reengage the fire today to continue building containment line.
Crews and heavy equipment operators assigned to the No Man Fire (267 acres) north of Chilcoot Mountain are using roads in the area to
begin building containment line around the fire. The steep, rugged terrain means it is unlikely that firefighters will be working on the ground
close to the fire’s edge. Great Basin Team 5 continues to work with cooperators west of the fire to coordinate the construction of indirect
control lines.

Firefighters assigned to the Reynolds Butte Fire (84 acres) are building direct containment lines in areas that have been identified as having
the greatest likelihood for success. Work is also being done to further secure and improve containment line and hoselays around the Lost
Bucket Fire (35 acres). The Fuller Lake Fire (38 acres) and Bullpup Fire (110 acres) are unstaffed until additional resources become available.
Weather today is expected to be cooler with light wind. Smoke and high-level cloud cover should reduce solar heating today, which may
moderate fire activity. Information about smoke impacts is available at https://outlooks.airfire.org/outlook/d393fd74 .

Area fire restrictions and danger ratings are as follows: Fire Danger Rating: High. Industrial Fire Precaution Levels (IFPLs): 2. Public Use Fire
Restrictions (PURs): 2.

CLOSURES: Umpqua National Forest has issued two closures across the forest in response to fire activity to protect public and wildland
firefighter safety. Emergency Fire Closure ORDER NO. 06-15-24-03 and Emergency Fire Closure ORDER NO. 06-15-02-24-01 which impact
all of the Cottage Grove Ranger District, most of the Diamond Lake Ranger District, and parts of the Tiller and North Umpqua Ranger
Districts. The closure orders can be found here: https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/umpqua/alerts-notices.

Central Oregon — Crescent, Oregon — Klamath County, Oregon — The Red Fire is located within the Diamond Peak Wilderness on
the
Deschutes National Forest, on the southwest slope of Redtop Mountain. The fire is being managed under a full suppression strategy.
The
Southern Area Gray Incident Management Team, led by Incident Commander Fulton Jeansonne, assumed command of the fire on
Friday,
July 19, at 6:00 a.m. local time. Public and firefighter safety is the highest priority in managing this fire.

The Diamond Peak Wilderness encompasses 52,500 rugged acres straddling the crest of the Cascade Mountains. It was designated in
1964
by the Wilderness Act, to be stewarded in its natural, undeveloped condition. Motorized equipment, motor vehicles, and aircraft are
prohibited
in Wilderness by federal law, with narrow criteria for exceptions. The USDA Forest Service has authorized the use of chain saws,
portable
pumps, fire retardant, and aircraft landings by firefighters on the Red Fire since initial attack.

At 8:00 p.m., on Sunday, July 21, the Southern Area Gray Incident Management Team also assumed command of the Jackpine Fire
located in
Klamath and Deschutes counties. Firefighters continue to work in full suppression strategy. Additional information is available in a
separate
Jackpine Fire Daily Updates.

Yesterday’s Activities – Firefighters continued to assess and scout opportunities for containment lines in the Wilderness. Structure
assessment
work was completed in the area of Odell Lake, Crescent Lake Junction, and Crescent Lake. Construction of a shaded fuel break
continued
along the west side of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks and the north side of Forest Service Road 60. The reduction in acreage is due
to more
accurate mapping based on an infrared flight.

Today’s Activities – Firefighters will continue to assess and scout opportunities for control features in the Wilderness. Construction of
the
shaded fuel break will continue along the west side of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks and the north side of Forest Service Road 60,
west of
the community of Crescent Lake Junction.

Weather – Mostly sunny with haze throughout the day. High temperature near 75, minimum humidity 35-45 percent. Winds light in the
morning, then west to northwest 4-8 mph with gusts to 20 mph in the afternoon.

Sprague River, OR - The Knot Fire which started on private ODF protected land located 3 miles northeast of Sprague River, near Walla
Walla
Road and Kootenai Street has reached 70% containment. The fire is currently under investigation.

With more accurate mapping the fire size is 1,551 acres and currently 100% lined with a combination of dozer and hand line. Yesterday
crews
focused on securing the existing line and mopping up around the fire edge.

Today there will be multiple type 2 hand crews that consist of 20 people, contract equipment and several engines. Crews will continue
to patrol
the fire line to ensure the fire is held within the original footprint.

This will be the final update for the Knot Fire. Firefighters will continue to work the fire until it reaches full containment which is predicted
by
the end of the week.

The Klamath County Sheriff’s Office lowered the evaluation levels, which is now a level 1 (Be Ready) for the areas of Drews Road,
Tablelands
Road and Oregon Pine Road. Drews Road is open, but the public is asked to stay out of the fire area and use caution when traveling
back
home.

Dufur, Ore. – Night shift pushed mop-up deeper into the fire and continued to remove lingering heat inside the perimeter. Infrared
imaging is being used to aid firefighter’s efforts to find and cool hidden heat sources.

Patrols continue along the fire’s edge in several areas, including Jordan and Tygh Creek. Crews are also backhauling hose and
supplies that are no longer needed on the fireline.

Tomorrow, the Oregon Department of Forestry Incident Management Team 2 will transfer command of the fire to a robust local Type 3
team comprised of many firefighters that were on this fire during initial attack. The Type 3 organization will be shadowing ODF Team 2
today to gain additional knowledge of the fire. Transfer of command is planned for tomorrow morning at 6 a.m.

Today’s weather will be similar to yesterday, with light upslope winds and temperatures in the 90s. Hot and very dry conditions are
expected over the weekend, with temperatures in the triple digits.

The Farm Service Agency out of The Dalles offers disaster recovery assistance programs for lands affected by the fire. Details
regarding these programs can be explained through FSA staff contacts: www.wascoswcd.org/wasco-county-farm-service-agency-staff

Evacuation orders are being reviewed today by the Wasco County Sheriff’s Office.

Condon, Ore. — The Lone Rock Fire is being managed under a full suppression strategy by the unified command of the Northwest
(NW)
Team 2 and Oregon State Fire Marshal (OSFM) Red Team.

Yesterday’s Activities: Firefighters worked through the day along the eastern side of the fire perimeter to build control lines from Burton
Hill to
the south. The steep terrain between Forest Service Road (FSR) 21 and FSR 25 continued to pose challenges for control. Crews used
existing dozer line and water tenders to suppress fire activity in this area. Night crews continued these suppression tactics by beginning
to
construct a hose lay along the fireline. Additionally, indirect dozer line is being used as a contingency. South of FSR 25 crews continued
to
secure the fireline with direct and indirect line and begin mop-up activities where fire behavior allowed.
Crews and OSFM structural task forces carried out firing operations and structure protection on the southern portion of the fire. While
fire
activity did increase with the addition of fire on the landscape, crews were successful in holding the line with minimal spotting. Where
fire did
extend beyond the planned control lines, firefighters were quick to secure and contain any minimal spot fires.
On the northern portion of the fire, crews continued to patrol the fireline with no change in fire activity in the area with 40 percent
containment.
Strategic aerial firefighting plays a critical role in firefighting effort when supported by firefighters on the ground. Aerial supervision
provides
birds-eye identification of hot spots and coordinates where to send helicopters equipped for suppression and is needed when there are
multiple aviation assets in the air. Use of aircraft for strategic aerial firefighting is constantly evolving based on resource availability,
weather,
and smoke conditions. Strategic aviation resources were also used in aerial ignition with a plastic sphere dispenser (PSD) on Tuesday.
The
PSD allowed firefighters ease in connecting large areas of unburned fuels that threated to extend beyond the western edge of the fire
along
FSR 25. Task forces conducted structure assessment of areas to the west of FSR 25 and crews identified a small spot to the west of
Notch
Road. Crews worked through the evening to build line around this spot to reduce further growth.
OSFM structural task forces worked with their wildland partners to hold Highway 19 and support firing operations. Crews were also able
to
access areas of the fire that previously burned to begin damage assessments. During their initial assessments, OSFM resources
identified
three primary residences that were destroyed by the fire. Assessments will continue as firefighters are able to get into more areas,
some
additional structure damage may be found. An additional structural task force from Marion County arrived, bringing the total number of
OSFM
structural task forces to 13.
Today’s Activities:
Patrols and mop-up activities to maintain the existing fire perimeter will continue today in anticipation of some incoming weather. There
is a
Red Flag Warning in effect from 12:00 p.m. through 11:00 p.m. this evening for abundant lightning for fire weather zones.
Thunderstorms in
the afternoon and evening hours to the southeast of the fire perimeter may bring strong winds, lightening, and overall instability to the
fire
area. Shifting winds patterns, particularly in the tight canyons and draws, may test containment lines.
The focus for much of the uncontained fire perimeter will be on holding the existing line, connecting control line, and prepping unburned
areas.
Sprinkler line will continue to be installed on the fire’s western perimeter between FSR 21 and FSR 25 for holding where terrain allows.

The Great Basin Complex Incident Management Team 6, led by Incident Commander Mack McFarland, assumed command of the
Microwave
Fire at 6:00 a.m. this morning, Wednesday, July 24, 2024. The Complex Incident Management Team brings additional resources and
management capabilities to implement a full suppression strategy for the Microwave Tower Fire. The Microwave Tower Fire was first
detected
on July 22 and the cause is currently under investigation.

Fire Behavior
The fire has seen moderate activity with intermittent single tree torching, some flanking and smoldering creating a moderate amount of
smoke.
The fire also saw growth backing down the north slope. With the expected increased winds today, crews are ready to address
increased fire
behavior and there is a potential for increased smoke in the area.

Currently, personnel assigned to the fire are building a combination of dozer and hand line on the southern edge to contain the fire.
Additionally, crews are working to improve roads, trails and previously constructed contingency lines around the remainder of the fire.

Evacuations
The Mosier Senior Center at 500 E. 2nd Ave., is being used as a cooling center for the public where they can also charge their devices.

Special Note: This update covers seven wildland fires on the Willamette National Forest being managed by the Rocky Mountain
Complex Incident Management Team 1 (CIMT1). The Team assumed command of the fires on Tuesday, July 23, 2024. We thank the
Willamette National Forest and initial attack firefighters for setting us up for success as we continue working to suppress these fires.
Current Situation: Suppression activities are underway on fires deemed the highest priority, namely the Chalk, Coffeepot, and Moss
Mountain Fires. Additional resources have been requested to bolster suppression efforts, however, with 38 large fires in Oregon alone,
resources for fire suppression are extremely limited and are being prioritized carefully statewide. An infrared flight occurred on Tuesday
and has provided incident management staff a more accurate assessment of fire perimeters. Coordination of suppression activities with
local, state, and industry representatives is ongoing. Information about the fires and our suppression activities is available daily through
these updates, social media, InciWeb, and community information boards. The following fire information is listed in order of suppression
priority.

Chalk Fire (2,427 acres, 0% contained) – Tuesday’s infrared flight shows that the Chalk Fire’s perimeter has grown by approximately
1,000 acres to its current 2,247 acres. The Chalk Fire is burning in a mixture of continuous fuel, all of which are receptive to fire.
Existing roads and previous fire breaks are being used to build containment line. Mechanized equipment is being used to support
control efforts on the main part of the fire. The Chalk Fire abuts the 2021 Gales Fire scar, which will slow its progress and assist with
control.

Coffeepot Fire (613 acres, 0% contained) – Activity on the Coffeepot Fire increased on Tuesday due to strong winds aligning with steep,
rugged terrain. An airtanker supported efforts yesterday on the Coffeepot Fire to attack the fire.

Moss Mountain Fire (168 acres, 0% contained) – The fire is threatening the Wolf Mountain communications site. Firefighters and heli-
rappelers are working to contain the fire edge with some success. Firefighters will also tie the fire into existing fire footprints in the area
will also be used to limit fire spread.

208 Fire (112 acres, 0% contained) – This fire is entirely within the Diamond Peak Wilderness and while it is spreading with moderate
growth, it does not currently present a threat to high values at risk. The Pacific Crest Trail, which runs near this fire, is closed within the
Wilderness.

217 Fire (32 acres, 0% contained) – This fire is also within Diamond Peak Wilderness and is threatening to spread outside the
Wilderness boundary on its north flank. The fire is being assessed for future actions.

Tire Mountain Fire (20 acres, partially contained) – This fire is in steep old growth timber on a north slope and is accessible to smaller
engines by road. Firefighters have made good progress constructing fireline on the west and south sides. Containment is expected in
the near term.

McKinley Fire (26 acres, partially contained) – In steep terrain south of the 19 Road. Containment is anticipated in the near term.

Weather and Fire Behavior:
A northwest air flow is establishing with seasonal temperatures. Nighttime temperatures are dropping to 45-55 degrees with relative
humidities of 60-80%. An inversion over the area this morning has held smoke at ground level. The inversion will break around 1:00 pm,
allowing temperatures to rise to 70-80 degrees and humidity to lower to 35-40%. These conditions will contribute to increasing fire
activity in the afternoon, with potential for spotting and increased rates of spread.

Evacuations: There are no evacuations in place at the present time.

Blue River, Or – Fire suppression efforts continue on the Ore Fire, which is burning 7 miles northeast of Blue River, Oregon. Challenges
include steep and rugged terrain, falling rocks and rolling debris, fire-weakened trees, and extreme weather conditions. Firefighter and public
safety remain the number one priority on the incident. Fire managers are focusing on activities with a high probability of success while
minimizing risk to firefighters while protecting values such as communities, infrastructure and forest, recreation and cultural resources.

Last night’s community meeting in Blue River was well attended and the Northwest Complex Incident Management Team 10 expresses its
appreciation for the community’s support and engagement.

Yesterday, burning debris rolling down the steep slopes caused fire to slopover (cross) the control line at the FS 1509 Road about a mile from
the FS 15 Road junction. Ground crews, assisted by aviation resources, secured this slopover, but falling debris will remain a challenge in the
southwest portion where the fire is most active. An engine patrolled and monitored through the night. Road grading was completed along the
FS 1509 Road, north of Tidbits Trailhead. Firefighters successfully held the fire at the FS 15 Road, and heat is diminishing along the
established control line.

Today, crews will monitor the slopover, and patrol the rest of the southwest line as the fire continues backing down to FS 1509. Feller
bunchers and masticators will follow the road grading operations above Tidbits Trailhead to strengthen the FS 1509 Road. Northeast of the
fire, grading operations will begin along the FS 1513 Road.

Weather: Occasional shading from passing clouds will trend temperatures a few degrees cooler and moderate humidity today compared to
yesterday. Terrain-driven winds continue for the next few days. A deep marine layer will push onshore tonight, bringing mostly cloudy skies,
warmer overnight low temperatures, and excellent humidity recovery.

Safety: Fire danger continues to increase as does the number of fire incidents around the region. The public plays a crucial role in preventing
the next wildfire. Your caution with all ignition sources can help avoid causing undue strain on firefighting resources. For prevention tips, visit
https://keeporegongreen.org. Fire restrictions are in place within the Willamette National Forest. For more information visit
https://www.fs.usda.gov/main/willamette/fire. A Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) is in place over the fire area.

Smoke: Smoke from numerous wildfires burning throughout the state will affect air quality in many areas over the coming days. An Air
Resource Advisor is now assigned to the Ore Fire and providing daily smoke outlooks for the affected area at https://wildlandfiresmoke.net.
Being prepared for smoke is important to everyone’s health. For more information go to: www.airnow.gov/wildfires/be-smoke-ready.org/

the
Pioneer Fire Information Facebook page. Please submit questions in advance to 2024.pioneer@firenet.gov or via Facebook
Messenger.

CURRENT SITUATION: Firefighters continued to engage in suppression and containment work on multiple fronts of the Pioneer Fire
yesterday. Helicopters dropped water buckets on the northern flank of the fire as crews started construction of check line south of Flick
Creek
drainage. The check line is designed to incorporate natural barrier to slow the progression of the fire along the lake shore. The state
mobilized strike team, which arrived on Monday, received their engines and trucks by barge. The additional equipment will enable them
to
further structure protection around private structures within Stehekin. UAS (drones) were flown over the Lone Fir drainage west of
Manson to
search for heat using infrared technology. No hot spots were found across the drainage. Road work and vegetation removal continued
on
contingency lines east of Manson along the Forest Service Road 8200 area.

TODAY’S ACTIVITIES: Last night the fire began backing into the Flick Creek drainage but has not crossed Flick Creek. Today
firefighters will
focus their attention on holding that section of the fire in the Flick Creek drainage. The state mobilized strike team will continue structure
protection preparations in Stehekin. Lone Fir drainage will be monitored for heat spots. While monitoring the Lone Fir drainage crews
will be
poised for action as needed.

WEATHER: Inversions on Wednesday morning will give way to afternoon sunshine and warm temperatures reaching the mid 80s. The
air will
not be as dry as previous days but humidity levels may drop to around 25% in the afternoon. Light winds are expected early in the day
and
into the early afternoon. Wind speeds are forecasted to pick up later in the early evening with gusts of about 10 mph but may get up to
as high
as 20 mph. The winds will continue through Thursday of similar speeds.

CURRENT SITUATION: In the past few days, significant progress has been made in opening existing roads and establishing a control
line
around the perimeter of the fire. Additional crews, fire hose, and pumps are being added to strengthen firefighting efforts. Today, heavy
equipment and masticators will continue working north and east around the fire's perimeter.

FIRE BEHAVIOR: The fire is burning in an old-growth forest with no recent fire activity. Jeff Shelton, Fire Behavior Specialist, shared
that he
does not see the potential for significant fire activity to occur within the next three days. Shelton explained that due to light winds, the
smoke is
not dispersing and is acting like a lid to lessen fire activity.

WEATHER: The weather pattern of weak upper troughing and relatively cool onshore flow will continue for the next several days.
Temperatures will remain slightly below normal with elevated humidity and light northwest winds.

CLOSURES: On July 19th, the Willamette National Forest issued an emergency closure order for the Pyramid Fire to ensure public and
firefighter safety. Please refer to the link below for a map of the closure area and a list of trails, recreation areas, and forest roads

Klamath County, Oregon — The Red Fire is located within the Diamond Peak Wilderness on the Deschutes National Forest, on the
southwest
slope of Redtop Mountain. The fire is being managed under a full suppression strategy.

The Southern Area Gray Incident Management Team, led by Incident Commander Fulton Jeansonne, assumed command of the fire on
Friday,
July 19, at 6:00 a.m. local time. Public and firefighter safety is the highest priority in managing this fire.

The Diamond Peak Wilderness encompasses 52,500 rugged acres straddling the crest of the Cascade Mountains. It was designated in
1964
by the Wilderness Act, to be stewarded in its natural, undeveloped condition. Motorized equipment, motor vehicles, and aircraft are
prohibited
in Wilderness by federal law, with narrow criteria for exceptions. The USDA Forest Service has authorized the use of chain saws,
portable
pumps, fire retardant, and aircraft landings by firefighters on the Red Fire since initial attack.

Yesterday’s Activities – Firefighters continued to assess and scout opportunities for control features in the Wilderness. Construction of
the
shaded fuel break continued along the west side of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks and the north side of Forest Service Road 60,
west of the
community of Crescent Lake Junction.

Approximately 140 people attended last night’s community meeting in Crescent Lake Junction, Oregon. An additional 176 attended the
live
broadcast. A recording of the community meeting is available here.

Today’s Activities – Firefighters will continue to assess and scout opportunities for control features in the Wilderness. Construction of
the
shaded fuel break will continue along the west side of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks and the north side of Forest Service Road 60,
southwest of the community of Crescent Lake Junction. Heavy equipment working on the shaded fuel break along FS Road 60 will
cause
temporary traffic stoppages. The public is encouraged to avoid travel on FS Road 60 if possible.

Weather – Sunny today with areas of smoke and haze. Temperature 80-83, humidity around 30 percent. Light terrain-driven winds
becoming
southwest at 5 mph.

PUBLIC MEETING Wednesday July 24, 7 PM
KELLER COMMUNITY CENTER
FIRE ACTIVITY: Wednesday, the winds will be 5-9 mph from the SW starting about 10am. Gusts will be up to 20 mph after 10 am.
Thursday,there will be cooler temperatures, however 7-13 mph winds will be westerly and increase to 16-21 in the afternoon with gusts
up to
35 mph.
Fire Behavior Analyst Eric Trimble said “Due to the forecasted weather,dry fuels, and topography, there is a high probability that the fire
will
impact the communities in and around Keller, Washington.” Based on computer modeling, this may happen in the next two or three
days.
Swawilla Fire
The Swawilla Fire has progressed down to State Highway 21 but is holding on the Old Swawilla Road on the west shoulder of the fire.
The fire
remains active on the east side and has made it to French Johns Lake. There will be a focus onstructure assessment and protection
along the
affected Hwy 21 corridor. On the north and west side of the fire, firefighterswill try to extend existing roads and older firelines, which will
reduce
the amount of new fireline.
Air support has been limited because of low visibility due to smoke. However, when visibility allows, a Type 1 and Type 3 helicopters
have
been used to assist with fire suppression. In addition, an infra-red flight was conducted, which assists with mapping the fire perimeter.
Night crews conducted a swing shift Tuesday night and will be conducting full nightshifts as long as it is needed, and fire weather
makes it
necessary to do so.
An evacuation center has been opened at the Lake Roosevelt High School gymin Coulee Dam.
With the increase in people and resources to fight the fire, the firefighters will bemoving some of their equipment from the camp in
Keller to
Owhi Flats near theintersection of Cache Creek Road and the Agency Cutoff Roads. Fire suppression crews will continue efforts in the
Keller
area.
Bridge Creek Wildfire
Firefighters are monitoring the line on the Bridge Creek fire, improving the fire line where snags may fall on Bridge Creek Road and
conducting priority structure protection.

Staffed by Falls Fire personnel
Telephone Fire: The Telephone Fire started Monday, July 22, south of King Mountain on the Emigrant Creek Ranger District on the
Malheur
National Forest. The fire perimeter is approximately five miles east of Highway (Hwy) 395 and fourteen miles north of Hwy 20.
Yesterday’s
operations focused on establishing control lines around the fire and conducting tactical burnout operations intended to harden and
secure
control lines around the fire. Control lines included using FSR 28 on the eastern flank and tying a system of roads to the north and west,
including FSR 480 and FSR 2020, over to FRS 28. Crews and dozers also worked in coordination to establish control lines along the
southern
perimeter of the fire. Oregon State Fire Marshal (OSFM) resources have pivoted to assist with the Telephone Fire. These crews
continue to
identify and complete surface prep on homes north of Hwy 20 and along the drainages including Reed, Harney, King Mountain,
Rattlesnake
Road/FSR 28, and surrounding areas.

Today, crews will continue to construct control lines around the fire and then strengthen and hold them. Aerial resources will be
available to
help with suppression operations.
