Weekend lightning storm starts fires in Wallowa County


A lightning storm early Sunday morning started fires on the Wallowa-Whitman
National Forest and private land outside of Wallowa.
 
A 15-acre fire is burning in the Eagle Cap Wilderness near Red’s Horse Ranch.
District Ranger Mary DeAguero said the fire was discovered at 3 p.m. Tuesday and the
Forest Service has been fighting it with helicopter bucket drops.
 
The fire on Bald Mountain is in terrain too difficult to access by fire crews, so
helicopters will continue to drop water on it today.
 
DeAguero said she will fly over the fire today to get a better assessment.
On Sunday afternoon, Oregon Department of Forestry crews responded to a fire
on Smith Mountain; partly on non-industrial private land and partly on Hancock
Timber land.
 
Mike Shaw of the department’s Wallowa Unit said a lightning storm came
through the area around midnight Saturday and started the 27-acre Smith Mountain
Fire. It is now 100 percent contained and 30 percent mopped up. Shaw said mop-up will
continue today.
 
The Bear Gulch Fire, reported Sunday afternoon 18 miles east of Enterprise, was stopped at 44 acres by and is 95 percent contained.
