ODF Fire Report: Friday, Sept. 18, 2020 Oregon Activity Summary

www.tillamookcountypioneer.net

The Oregon Department of Forestry are closely monitoring 10 major fires in Oregon, (see table below for details). Echo Mountain and the North
Cascade complexes were removed from today’s report. Fires are removed from the list when they are 100% lined and fire managers are confident in their progress toward containment.

There are more than 6,500 personnel assigned to these fires from across the nation and Canada. This doesn’t include the many government emergency response employees, landowners, forestland operators, and members of the community who are contributing to the fight in whatever way they can. About 1 million acres have burned in Oregon since the start of this year, which is nearly double the 10-year average of approximately 557,811.
