Eastern Oregon fires burn together

VALE – The Bureau of Land Management said high winds continue to spread a pair of Eastern Oregon wildfires.

According to information released by the BLM’s Vale District, two fires -- the Stockade Fire and the Crowley Creek Fire -- have burned together as winds of more than 30 miles per hour spread the fire north and east. The fire is located five miles due east of Stockade Mountain in Malheur County. 

Resources on the fire include 12 engines, three bulldozers, three water-tenders, three 20-person hand crews and five helicopters. Large air tankers continue to support fire personnel with retardant drops and single engine air tankers are scheduled to arrive Wednesday afternoon and will work out of the Ontario Airport in support of fire operations. 

Additional resources have been requested and are expected to arrive later Wednesday. 

Harney Electric Cooperative was notified late Tuesday evening that electric transmission lines along the Crowley Road could be damaged by the fire. Three ranches in the area are threatened, along with numerous outbuildings but none have sustained damage. 

The South Fork Fires, made up of five small fires, continues to hold at 250 acres. The fires are located on state lands in Harney County near the South Fork of the Malheur River. Engine crews and hand crews continue to make good progress on these fires.
