Weather makes Green Ridge Fire 'misbehave'

Winds pushed spot fires over Green Ridge and from ¾ of a mile and one mile to the east, according to fire spokesman Jim Mackensen. That and burnout operations pushed the total acreage as of this morning to an estimated 950 acres.

"It misbehaved a bit yesterday, " Mackensen said.

Weather is expected to complicate firefighting operations over the next several days, although fire officials are sticking with Saturday, August 10, as the projected date of containment.

Thunderstorms will move across the region over the next couple of days. They carry the possibility of dry lighting, but also the possibility of wetting rain, depending on how the cells move across the Sisters Country.

Given the storms and the topography, Mackensen said, "we've got some potential issues with the way the wind is going to blow."

Firefighters are shoring up containment lines and building contingency lines to deal with whatever the next days bring.

A community meeting is scheduled at the Camp Sherman Community Hall on Friday, August nine, at 6:30 p.m. All are invited to attend for a briefing on the fire from the team fighting it and from Forest Service staff.
