Area had apparently been logged earlier.

Area had apparently been logged earlier.


Yesterday’s weather tested the firelines as predicted it would. All three of the fire’s containment lines held. In fact the wind and the lower relative humidity helped to “smoke out” hot spots inside the perimeter by allowing them to heat up and smoke. Mike Totey ODF District Forester said “it passed the test”.

Further mop up of the fires will continue today. The northern most section of the fire (division A) has several hot spots inside the containment line. Some fire crews will shift from the other divisions to add capacity to this fire today.

Fire personnel will be trimmed over the next 2 days to have the right size crews remaining on the fire. Crews will be working on the fire until it is in a patrol status. The fire team is working on plans to return the fire back to the local district.

Total burn is now estimated at just over 200 acres.

Forgarty Creek State Park will temporarily remain closed to the public while fire crews are uaw it for fire camp. County officials let us know when it will reopen.

Although there has not been a lot of smoke in the area, you can find current smoke information for Oregon at the Oregon Smoke Blog http://oregonsmoke.blogspot.com/

The Oregon Health Authority recommends that individuals with asthma, other lung disease, or heart disease, may be more sensitive to health effects from wildfire smoke and should reduce the amount of time spent outdoors or stay inside.

Don’t buy fishing/hunting licenses on line from state ODFW – they don’t know if their license website has been hacked!

Evidence of somebody hacking ODFW’s fishing/hunting license website has prompted ODFW to say, “We haven’t been hacked, but we’re not sure if we’ve been hacked,” and then promptly shut down the state’s licensing website.

Go figure.

But at least they were honest about it – however clumsily revealed. So the net result is that fishing and hunting licenses should be acquired locally at your local Bi-Mart, Fred Meyers or Cabela’s, or any other license vendor.

Still shot from a video showing herbicides being sprayed on forestry worker.


About a year ago in Douglas County, a heavy equipment operator videoed being flown over by an illegal forestry herbicide spraying operation. The video went viral on the internet. The chopper pilot was turned in and told he was grounded. But he kept flying and spraying anyway in defiance of the order.

A full year later the pilot has finally been fined as well as the company he flew for. Here’s the story in The Oregonian. Click here.

The 10-hour night closures will continue at milepost 16.3 near the west end of the project. Closures will take place from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m, Sunday through Thursday nights.

Blasting continues in the west end curve section. All blasts will take place during the night closure window. Once night closures begin, daytime flagging will no longer occur.

Travelers between Newport and Corvallis should expect increased congestion due to trucks entering and exiting the highway at both ends of the project on U.S. 20. Paving work is moving from night shift to day shift so travelers should expect an increase in truck traffic due to asphalt deliveries.

ODOT will be fog sealing U.S. 20 between milepost 24.5 and 29.3 on August 29. Travelers should expect short delays of up to 20 minutes.

Most work is taking place away from the existing U.S. 20 roadway, including the installation of a wildlife crossing culvert, as well as a large buttress for landslide mitigation.

The majority of the new alignment is still scheduled to be open to traffic by mid October.
