Camp Creek Fire Reports Only Modest Growth

Crews on the Camp Creek Fire in the Mt. Hood National Forest near the Bull Run Watershed reported only modest growth to the south and east on Monday, away from the watershed.  Firefighters continued to improve Forest Roads 12 and 14 to serve as primary containment lines and observed some backing and flanking fire spread despite the misty, cool conditions.  Fire behavior analysts expect to see limited spread today with persistent burning due to how dry the large fuels are.  Fire behavior may be moderated by the cool and moist conditions, but heavy tree canopy will likely prevent rain from wetting the understory, allowing fuels like logs and timber litter to smolder and creep due to long-term seasonal dryness.  Size of the fire remains listed at 1,607 acres, with no containment figure.
