Big Hollow Fire At 12,050 Acres

The Big Hollow fire, burning northeast of the Trapper Creek Wilderness on the Mt. Adams Ranger District, is now estimated to be about 12,050 acres in size and growing.  The U.S. Forest Service says Gifford Pinchot National Forest crews are assessing the situation and assisting with evacuations and clearing downed trees from roads.  A Type II fire team has been ordered to take over management of the fire.  The Gifford Pinchot National Forest is temporarily closing areas to public access.  This includes developed campgrounds, dispersed camping, day use areas, wilderness areas, and most forest roads and trails within the closure area.  The forest has also enacted a forest-wide ban on campfires.  This ban applies to all campfires, including those inside and outside of developed recreation areas and campgrounds.
