Goff fire fully contained

burning

 

YREKA, Calif. — The Goff Fire and Fort Complex fire is now 100 percent contained about a month after it was started. Two fire teams are leading mop-up, patrol and suppression repair operations, as the fire is not expected to leave the containment lines and the personnel count is being downsized to about 200. The fire burned over 22,000 acres in the Klamath and Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forests.

Smoke Centralizes In Sisters

Dense, hazardous smoke settled Sisters for about six hours Tuesday morning as crews battled a forest fire 7 miles to the southwest.

Poor air quality was expected in the town because of a temperature inversion, according to the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. The potential for poor air quality could continue through Saturday.

So far the fire has destroyed four vehicles, but has caused no injuries as it burns around 4,300 acres. The fire has not yet advanced on populated areas, but residents of a subdivision west of Sisters have been notified they might need to evacuate.
