Last update: October 9

Current Situation

Yesterday, the Umpqua and Willamette National Forests released a revised closure order allowing access to
some parts of the Forest that were previously closed. A link to the new order and maps is below.
The fire is displaying minimal activity, however there are still safety concerns with the crews, trucks, large
equipment, and damaged roadways. The Blue Team and the Forest Service are working together to clean things
up so life can return to normal.
There will continue to be a decrease of firefighter presence as deconstruction of the Incident Command Post
will occurs over the next few days. However, there will be an influx of personnel working in and around the fires’
perimeter. Many of the heavy equipment operators, drivers, and contractors are local and their work is critical in
helping restore the Forest.
Workers are making great progress in suppression repair operations. But heavier traffic continues on Highway
138 as more equipment will be hauling chips and debris from suppression repair out of the fire area.
This will be the last updated Daily Facts Sheet. Information will continue to be shared on Inciweb and
Facebook.

Fire Conditions and Weather

Surface fuels are wet and will only support minor smoldering or creeping of fire. Heavy fuels will continue to
hold heat, but fire spread remains minimal.
Today, will be mostly sunny skies with slightly warmer temperatures. Clouds will start to move in overnight
along with cooler temperatures for Sunday.

Closures:

The Umpqua and Willamette National Forests and BLM Roseburg District have temporarily closed areas of
both Forests due to the Jack Fire, Rough Patch Complex, and Devils Knob Complex. View the closure area
