Corner Creek Fire Update Tuesday, July 14

Corner Creek Fire Update
Tuesday, July 14, 2015, 8:00 a.m.
Fire Information: (541) 416-6811

The management of the Corner Creek Fire was transferred to Albuquerque Zone Type 3 Incident Management team (Incident Commander Ryan Romero) at 6 a.m. today.

The South Fork Road/County Road 42 has been reopened for public use.  An area closure remains in effect around the fire on National Forest land.

The Corner Creek fire is 85% contained and remains at 29,407 acres.  Wide spread significant precipitation has occurred over most of the fire area in the past couple of days.  On the western flank, firefighters continued to mop-up and patrol along the containment lines, extinguishing any burning and smoldering materials.  The repair of all fire suppression efforts, including heavy equipment lines, hand lines, and spike camps continues. Fire personnel will continue to patrol the fire on the eastern flank along the South Fork John Day River and road. 

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible again this afternoon and evening.  Thunderstorms could produce cloud-to ground lightning, gusty outflow winds, and moderate rainfall.  The extended forecast calls for a warming and drying trend through the end of the week.  Fire managers expect reduced fire behavior potential for the next several days. 

Crews and other firefighting resources will be reduced awaiting the arrival of favorable conditions to complete the suppression activity and secure a portion of the indirect fireline on the northwest corner of the fire.
