A fire reported in the Eagle Cap Wilderness Sunday afternoon grew to more than 15 acres overnight. The Vale Interagency Hotshot Crew and Grayback crews from La Grande are assisting local firefighters.

A Type I helicopter, based in La Grande, is supporting the suppression effort of the Nebo Fire located one mile inside the wilderness boundary, said Nathan Goodrich, Wallowa-Whitman North Zone fire management officer.

Goodrich said about 45 people will be assigned to the fire today and a small base camp is being set up at Lick Creek.

The forecast is for windy and hot today — there is upper air instability with the weather coming in tomorrow and lightning predicted for Tuesday and Wednesday, Goodrich said.

“We are going to try and get some checking action on the south and east side of the wilderness boundary side,” Goodrich said. “It’s in a snag patch with a lot of dead and down. It’s not in a good spot for us to manage.”
