Smoke Information for Beaver Complex

Oregon Gulch Fire, part of the Beaver Complex, is moving rapidly towards the east, deeper into Klamath County.  Reports of smoke have been received.  A good place to check air quality is Oregon Smoke blog.  See http://oregonsmoke.blogspot.com/.

Rick Graw, Air Quality Program Manager for the Pacific NW Region - USDA Forest Service, posted:

"Air quality monitors in Medford, Klamath Falls and Eugene were showing moderate air quality this afternoon, with smoke transported to the north during the day. Tomorrow, smoke is expected to be trasnported to the northeast of the fires, and back to a northerly transport direction on Sunday. Air quality is expected to remain moderate during the day, and will likely worsen at night and in the mornings, in the valleys."
