Weekend fire starts suppressed

Thursday afternoon storms resulted in numerous fire starts throughout the Blue Mountain region.

According to the Blue Mountain Interagency Dispatch Center, most of the fires were contained at the initial attack stage at less than an acre in size.

Two fires grew larger than one acre. Incident 975 on the Pomeroy Ranger District grew to 6.5 acres, and the Ridge Fire on the Burnt Powder Fire Zone burned 35 acres.

The Ridge Fire is burning in timber and is located about 6 miles north of Sumpter. Both ground and aerial resources were deployed to suppress the fire. The Forest Service issued a closure order for land around the Ridge Fire Friday.

Two fires, at less than two-tenths of an acre, were started in the Grande Ronde Fire Zone. La Grande Oregon Department of Forestry zone had five fires, at less than half an acre, and the Wallowa Fire Zone saw two fires at .35 acres.

Meanwhile, the Big Sheep 2 Fire is 95 percent contained 19 miles northeast of Joseph. The 129-acre fire still has some interior smoldering and will be monitored until a significant weather event, according to a Wallowa-Whitman press release.

The Vinegar Fire was 10 percent contained as of Sunday. The 1,161-acre fire is threatening structures and has prompted Level 1 evacuations and road closures.
