Wednesday July 21st update from Oregon Department of Forestry regarding the Game Hog Creek Fire:
“The Game Hog Creek Fire is in heavy mop-up today. Crews are pushing into the interior working to establish a 300-foot perimeter free of any burning material. Timber fallers have cut dangerous trees that pose a high risk of falling. Porta-tanks and pumps are in place to support mop-up activities. The fire perimeter has been mapped and the current estimate is 182 acres. It is 100% lined, but fire in the cliffs is still a concern.”
