Douglas Complex Information

For information about the Douglas Complex of wildfires burning near Glendale in Douglas, see a page dedicated to that fire on InciWeb.

Here's some information from a news release issued by the incident management team that is in charge of the fire's suppression:

It is estimated that about 7,500 acres have been burned between all the fires. A majority of the fires in the Douglas Complex are located in the Cow Creek Canyon west of Glendale. In addition, a handful of fires in the Milo area are included in the Complex. The total number of fires is expected to decrease as several fires in close proximity to each other have burned together.

Evacuations have begun west of McCullough Creek, in the Glendale area. At this time, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is evacuating all homes west of McCullough Creek Road to Reuben. Residents east of McCullough Creek Road to the mill west of Glendale are being asked to prepare for potential evacuation. This means residents are warned that should conditions worsen, they also will be asked to evacuate.
