Burnout of East Flank Planned for Big Windy Complex

If weather conditions are favorable, a burnout operation will be implemented today on the Big Windy Complex's east flank. A total of 1,351 personnel are assigned to the complex, estimated to be 15,447 acres in size, and the complex is 15 percent contained.

The closure on the portion of the Wild & Scenic Section of the Rogue River between Grave Creek and Marial was lifted yesterday, but some restrictions are still in effect. For more information about the river corridor, contact the Smullin Visitor Center at (541) 479-3735.

Bear Camp Road remains closed, and the Rogue River hiking trail between Grave Creek and Rogue River Ranch also is closed.
