Last night’s wind shift changed the winds coming from east to a southwest wind ending the fire making huge runs westward towards Lincoln City. Currently the fire activity is low: creeping and smoldering within the fire perimeter. After being at the fire today, Matt Thomas, ODF Protection Unit Forester, stated “Today’s weather is allowing the fire fighters to gain traction and make progress towards extinguishing this fire”.
Fire operations is being assisted by local resources including equipment and employees from Hancock Forest Management, Weyerhaeuser Company and Miami Corporation and the Confederate Tribes of Grand Ronde. Oregon Department of Forestry appreciates the partnership with the local fire and rescue squads especially North Lincoln Fire and Rescue, Newport Fire Department, Depoe Bay Fire and Rescue as well as the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and Oregon Department of Transportation for their assistance since the beginning of this incident.
Tonight’s weather forecast is for continued winds from the southwest 3-5 mph with high relative humidity recovery and mild temperatures in the 50’s. This will keep the fire low to the ground and fire fighters will continue working through the night.
Fire Summary: Lincoln City, OR: ODF (1 PM)
See attached PDF below for fire technical data.
Weather conditions were favorable last night for an Infra-red flight to fly over the fires to gather data for accurate fire perimeter mapping and acreage determination. The Echo Mountain Fire and Kimberling Fire are still separate fires, the combined acreage is 2,435 acres and zero percent containment.
Last night the wind shifted from east winds to southwesterly winds and that will help firefighters begin to attack this fire by establishing an anchor point and work on the east side of the fire.
Overhead personnel are flying in today from the Florida Forestry Service to add capacity to the Oregon Department of Forestry staff in managing this fire.
Pacific Power workers along with ODF Fire Officials and ODOT Foresters are walking the affected powerlines in the fire area to assess damages. Repairs have started. Power needs to be restored before people are allowed to return to their homes and road closures lifted. Restoring power to the Lincoln City Hospital is a priority and vital before it can reopen.
When can you return home?
It is possible that some evacuated community members may be allowed to return to their residences, later today. Power and hospital services must be safely restored first. Notices will be communicated through Lincoln Alerts, the County’s website and Facebook pages.
