Sunnyside Turnoff Fire Daily Update
July 28, 2013 (8 a.m.)
The Sunnyside Turnoff Fire is 51,340 acres, based on more accurate mapping. Despite gusty winds, hot temperatures and low relative humidity, the fire remained within containment lines and had no perimeter growth yesterday. The fire is located on lands of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs (CTWS) east of U.S. Highway 26 near Warm Springs, Oregon.
Overall containment has reached 90%. Specifically the fire remains south of the S-300/330 road; east of the S-110 road along the western perimeter; northeast of Upper Dry Creek road; north and west of the Deschutes River; and south of Antoken Creek along the northeast flank.
Mop-up of hotspots into the interior of containment lines and patrol will be the focus of suppression efforts today. Fireline suppression rehabilitation will continue where lines are no longer needed for containment. CTWS has also initiated a Burned Area Emergency Rehabilitation team to begin assessing rehabilitation needs.
There are currently 798 resources assigned to the fire. In response to a number of new fires started in other parts of Oregon and Washington, resources are being released and re-assigned to other emerging fire suppression priorities.
Oregon Interagency Incident Management Team 4 will turn back management of the Sunnyside Turnoff fire to a local Incident Management Team on Monday, July 29, at 8 p.m.
