Cowlitz Complex At 8% Containment

Containment on the Cowlitz Complex of fires on the Gifford Pinchot National Forest has increased to 8%, with the size of the complex holding at 697 acres.  The Cowlitz Complex is composed of several dozen relatively small fires spread acres across about 500,000 acres of the Pinchot.  A handful of the fires were declared “out” on Monday, allowing resources to be moved to other fires in the complex.  Very little smoke has been visible from these fires over the past week; however, a shot of sunshine Tuesday may result in some visible smoke production from the Grassy Mountain Fire.  A break in the cloud cover Tuesday afternoon is expected to bring a period of sunshine, though another weak front was expected to pass through, bringing clouds and light drizzle.  Temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees warmer than yesterday.
