Residents around the Whiskey Fire are likely to experience smoke this weekend.

Burnouts to deepen the width of containment lines along the south perimeter of the Whiskey Fire are in progress. (see Division G on the briefing map below) 

Operations are ongoing to complete a defensible containment line as a phase of hot and dry weather with erratic gusty winds is forecast through the early part of next week. Today (Sunday) morning conditions created a perfect window to conduct an aerial firing operation, in addition to hand firing.

Photos follow and aerial video clips will be linked from our Daily Motion channel today.
Thanks for your interest in the Whiskey Fire.
Our Information line is open live-person, 7a – 9p at 541 839 3099.

Bucket drops assisted ground crews by keeping the firing
operations cooler and consuming surface vegetation
at the desired speed and intensity.
