Summary: The High Cascades Complex East Zone includes the Spruce Lake, Blanket Creek, and North Pelican fires. Dry, unstable air contributed to an increase in fire intensity with visible plumes on both the Blanket Creek and Spruce Lake fires. There is a chance of thunderstorms from the south starting after midnight and running through 3:00 am. Spruce Lake Fire (14,515 acres and 21% contained) There was active fire on the west and north edges of the fire with no threat to values at risk. Crews have one more day of chipping operations along the North Entrance Road in order to prevent the fire spread to the east. Blanket Creek Fire (39,406 acres and 17% contained) Firefighters are holding the containment lines to the south and east of the fire edge. Plumes of smoke were seen as crews worked the Wet Blanket and Bessie Creek area which is located in an old burn scar. North Pelican (3,505 acres and 40% contained) Very low fire activity yesterday as crews continued to work on the north and south flank, building contingency lines to protect values at risk. Crews continue to work the north edge of the fire in rugged terrain and continue to look for opportunities for the highest probability of success considering firefighter safety as our number one priority. A Level 1 Evacuation Notification remains in effect for Mazama Village in Crater Lake National Park. Level 1 is the first step in the “Be Ready, Be Set, Go!” system.
