Closure Order 0414-05-036 for the McCan Fire area has been lifted as of August 20, 2013.
A map of the open area is available by clicking on the "Maps" link above.
This will be the final update for the McCan Fire unless significant activity occurs.
The McCan Fire is fully contained. It will, however, continue to be staffed as there is still work to be done. Rehabilitation of fire line, roads, firefighter camp sites, and dozer line will continue. The perimeter will be patrolled so that resources can respond to any fire activity as appropriate. The engines and crews still assigned to the fire will also be available for any new fires reported nearby.
Though the fire is contained, it is not out yet. Smoke will continue to be visible from interior islands of unburned vegetation in the coming days. Dust devils may also continue to be prevalent and can look like smoke columns from a distance.
John Kidd’s Incident Management Team has transitioned into shared operations of the Beaver Creek Fire. Everything west of the Camas/Blaine County Line will be under the command of Kidd’s Team and be known as Zone 1. This will allow the current Incident Management Team to focus efforts on the eastern side. Kidd’s Team will also maintain command of the McCan Fire for now.
