Oregon Fire Update: Monday Evening, July 12

4:04 AM · Jul 13, 2021

One new fire started today in Oregon, the Bruler Fire. It's about six miles south of Detroit Lake in Willamette National Forest. The Bruler Fire was estimated at 20 acres a few hours ago with the high potential to spread. The fire is burning near last year's Beachie Creek and Lionshead Fires scars. Bootleg Fire - Started off the day over 153k acres and really blew up again this evening as you can see from the satellite images of the burn area. Pyrocumulus clouds reportedly reached 40k feet in the air. There is a fire front on the front of the Bootleg Fire that is over 30 miles long. This is a monster fire and conditions down in the Klamath area have been humid and very windy making it very difficult to fight the fire. From the satellite, it appears the eastern edge of the fire moved east approximately 4 miles today. That is significant growth. Bootleg Fire Info: Bootleg Evacuation map: Grandview Fire - This fire is up near Sisters and started off yesterday evening at 400 acres. By Monday morning it had climbed to 4,000 acres.

Based upon satellite imagery, it doesn't appear that the fire grew a lot today, though you can see activity on the southern edge, western edge, and a little bit at the northern tip.
