Klamath Falls, Ore. – Last night fire crews continued to use infrared cameras to identify areas of heat around the perimeter of the fire. They are mainly finding heat under juniper trees on the southern and western areas.
Today is the last day the Oregon Department of Forestry’s Type 1 Incident Management Team will be in command of the fire. Transition to the local Type 4 team will happen tomorrow at noon. The objectives for the local team will remain the same. Multiple engines and crews will continue to mop up where it warrants.
Weather today will be cooler and more humid. Gusty winds are expected in the late afternoon and early evening.
Residential traffic is allowed in the fire area, but residents are encouraged to drive slowly and be aware of fire operation traffic as they travel through the fire. Bureau of Land Management lands in and around the fire area remain closed to the public.
We would like to remind the public that Klamath and Lake counties are still in extreme fire danger. Human-cause fire stats are down this fire season, so please help your local resources by preventing anything that can spark a fire. Visit https://www.oregon.gov/odf/fire/pages/restrictions.aspx for fire restrictions in your area or areas you may be traveling to.
This will be the final fire update from the ODF IMT. The team would like to thank the cooperators and public for their support during the fire. Without local resources and support from the community our team would not have been as successful.
