▶️ Spot fires break out at 41-acre Tolo Mountain Fire

Tolo Mountain Fire, July 29, 2022

Spot fires were breaking out in the preliminary containment area of the Tolo Mountain Fire near Crescent Lake Friday. That has prompted a local Type 3 team to take command of the fire fight starting Saturday morning.

The new estimate of the Tolo Mountain Fire is 41 acres. It is 0% contained, according to Central Oregon Fire Information.

“Multiple spot fires escaped the preliminary containment lines around the fire on Friday afternoon in critically hot, dry and breezy conditions,” Central Oregon Fire posted on its website. “Firefighters and heavy equipment have continued working the spot fires supported by a heavy helicopter and two Single Engine Air Tankers and are making progress constructing containment lines around the spots.”

Additional crews have been called in to join the fight. 

The Tolo Mountain Fire is burning about three miles north of Cappy Mountain and six miles west of Two Rivers subdivision.  It’s about three miles, as the crow flies, from the Pacific Crest Trail.
