Umpqua North and Falcon complexes taken over by fire managers from Umpqua National Forest
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Cooler and wetter weather has slowed fire growth in the wildfires within the Umpqua North and Falcon complexes. With diminished fire activity, fire managers from the Umpqua National Forest are now managing the fires which includes sharing fire-related information with the public.
People with questions pertaining to fire activity within the fires on Tiller Ranger District that are part of the Falcon Complex should call the Tiller Ranger Station at (541) 825-3100, Monday -Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Questions about the fires on the North Umpqua and Diamond Lake ranger districts within the Umpqua North Complex should go to the North Umpqua Ranger Station at (541) 496-3532, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Another place to check for updates about the fires on the Umpqua National Forest is the Facebook page for the forest.
Some information will also be updated on the Inciweb pages for both complexes.
Work on all fires is now focused on suppression repair, which includes removing slash and falling hazard trees along roads used as emergency fire lines.
When that work is completed, the fires will be in patrol status, where personnel will monitor activity.
Road, area, and trail closures remain in place for public and firefighter safety. The closure map dated October 6 can be viewed on the Umpqua National Forest website at https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd561121.pdf.
