This weekend firefighters completed a total of 183 acres of #prescibedfire on the Chemult Ranger District (Fremont-Winema National Forest).

The objective today was to accomplish 158 acres over the next 2-3 days if favorable weather conditions held to complete the Chemult Wildland-Urban Interface project.

After an updated forecast from NWS (National Weather Service-Medford) at noon today, the Fire managers have made the decision to officially cease all ignitions on the Chemult WUI for this year. This project area will not be treated this fall.

Crew will continue to mop-up the perimeter today to secure the treated units. A total of 580 acres have been completed over the last two weeks, with 205 acres remaining.

Thank you to the community of Chemult and all the participating partnerships for their patience and commitment to this project.

After many years of fire exclusion, an ecosystem that needs periodic fire becomes unhealthy. Trees are stressed by overcrowding; fire-dependent species disappear; and flammable fuels build up and become hazardous. However, the right fire at the right place at the right time helps maintain healthy forests, communities and watersheds.
