Oregon Fires 8/27/23

Today’s Livestream aired at 8am.

Lightning has ignited many fires in Western Oregon and several have become large. This video provides an overview of the largest fires in Oregon, in the Tyee Ridge Complex, the Chilcoot Fire east of Roseburg and Glide, the Lookout Fire, near MacKenzie Bridge, and the Camp Creek Fire, in Portland’s water supply, the Bull Run Watershed. We’ll look at how recent large fires in Oregon may affect potential spread on the new fires. Heat satellite data in these videos is current as of the morning of 8/27/20223.

We also look at the spread of ongoing NW Cal fires.


Thanks to everyone who joined in on the Livestream. I tried to answer some of the questions that came up. I appreciate the community vibe. I’ll be doing livestreams starting sometime between 7 and 7:30am during the week. I’ll do the occasional evening update if things are changing fast. Thanks for tuning into THE LOOKOUT.
