Bryant Fire

Oregon Department of Forestry Incident Management Team 1

June 23, 2014, 8:00 a.m.

Contact: Fire Information is located at the Bonanza School; Fire Camp Information Phone # 541-545-1633

Current Situation:

Yesterday fire fighters completed the fire line perimeter. Dozers were used to construct the majority of the fire line perimeter. On the steepest terrain too rugged for dozers, hand crews completed the remaining sections, thus completely encompassing the entire fire.

Today, fire fighters will begin the next stage: mop-up. Mop-up involves fire fighters digging out hot spots and extinguishing all remaining heat. Mop-up starts along the perimeter and moves toward the center of the fire. Diligent efforts of the crews working around the clock speed up the fire containment and mop up progress

Tonight the ODF IMT 1 would like to invite the community of Bonanza to attend an open house at the high school from 6:30PM to 7:30PM. The team wants the community to feel they have access to the latest fire updates and ability to tour the fire camp to understand the role all fire fighters and support personal play during the suppression efforts.

To date, no reportable injuries have occurred.
