Thank you Kathy.

Well, they keep promising a little rain,
in the 20 to 40 percent probability, but
the problem is, it would be accompanied
by lightening. Sure don't need that right
now.

Thanks, Delana.

We are quite safe here, it's just the
smoke that is bothersome for us.

It looks like we have several more days
to go before the air clears...if then.

Lightning brings several fires to Central Ore July 31, evening
FIRE NEWS--Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center

For Immediate Release: July 31, 2013 6:30 p.m.

Lightning brings several fires to area

Central Oregon - as expected, lightning moving across Central Oregon in the late afternoon kept initial attack firefighting resources busy responding to incidents on state and federal lands.

Crews responded to approximately 29 reports of smoke beginning around 3 p.m. By about 6 p.m. approximately 700 hundred lightning strikes had hit Central Oregon.

Airtankers dropped retardant and engines and crews responded to a fire, approximately 5 miles northeast of Sisters, OR that was threatening structures in the Squaw Creek Canyon Estates on private, state-protected lands. By 6:30 p.m. the crews had put dozer line completely around the fire.

Two small fires, approximately 3 to 4 miles west of the western edge of Cultus Lake, in the Three Sisters Wilderness were being responded to by helicopter rappel crews due to their remote nature. Approximately 4 miles northwest of the western edge of Cultus Lake, smokejumpers responded to a series of small fires around Little Round Top Mountain on the border of the Willamette National Forest and the Deschutes National Forest.

Two fires, one about 3 miles and one about 5 miles south of Lava River Cave, also had crews on them as the afternoon turned to evening. Near Suttle Lake, there was a fire about 2 1/2 miles directly north of the lake and another fire approximately 1 1/2 miles east of the lake's eastern edge. Firefighters were responding.

Oregon Dept. of Forestry information officers at 8:34 PM

We also hope for containment on those
fires. As of last night, no fire is
more than 10% contained. There are
approximately 87,475 acres under fire
in 5 major complexes.

Thanks, Charlotte, for looking and writing.

Wow that is a lot of fires burning.  I can't stand it when someone burns leaves around here. Especially if the smoke just settles low!  Hope things get back to normal soon.

About Doesiedoats

Doesiedoats

I’m a native Oregonian, born in Tillamook and reared in the greater Portland area. After working in the Bay Area in the semi-conductor industry as a Human Resources Representative, my husband and I retired in 1999, returned to Southern Oregon and settled in the Williams area. Photography interests started early on with a Kodak Box camera and later a Kodak 616 given to me by my father, a semi-professional photographer. After many years of film cameras, the advent of digital photography has expanded my interest in the hobby. My camera is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100. The Pacifica Gardens property has become the preferred subject of my photography because of its natural beauty. I have captured all four seasons over the past twelve years. I’m pleased to be able to share some of those photos with my WU friends. Please visit my web site via the link below.************************************************
