Orogrande Resident Meeting Scheduled as Crews Continue to Battle Williams Creek and Twin Lakes Fires

OROGRANDE – The Incident Management Team will host a community fire information meeting on Sunday for residents of Orogrande ONLY. Important information regarding this meeting includes the following:

  • The community of Orogrande remains under a “Level 3-GO” evacuation notice.
  • The meeting is for RESIDENTS OF OROGRANDE ONLY. The community is within an active fire area, and safety of the public and our firefighters is of the utmost importance.
  • There will be a security checkpoint at the road closure barricade, where residents will need to verify identify and proof of residence.

Crews were able to remove trees that had fallen over the 233 and 311 Roads, but numerous “snags” and standing dead trees remain a dangerous hazard. Resources will continue to engage the fire in Orogrande and the Crooked River corridor, locating and extinguishing hot spots and securing properties.

An overnight infrared flight mapped the Williams Creek fire at 12,447 acres. Much of the heat is scattered and spotty along the east perimeter, and pockets of intense heat continue to burn and fill in. Isolated heat is also showing on both sides of East Fork Crooked River.

An overnight infrared flight mapped the Twin Lakes fire at 934 acres. Firefighters have completed structure protection measures at Square Mountain Lookout. A structure protection module will implement structure protection measures at Moore’s Station today.
