Eagle Creek Fire Crews Focused On Repair & Cleanup

Focus for crews remaining on the Eagle Creek Fire continues to be on repair and cleanup of suppression efforts.  Resource Advisors are now working work with fire crews on protecting and preserving cultural and natural resource values along with historic and recreational feature.  One hand crew will proceed with their work near Wahtum Lake, low stumping and chipping along contingency lines on the south side of the fire.  A hotshot crew will continue their work on the southeast side of the fire and will begin building water bars on a piece of hand line in this area.  Crews have been scouting along Shellrock Mountain trying to identify a safe way for firefighters to engage with the active fire in this area.  On Sunday an engine was able to set up a sprinkler system on an area of live fire near Interstate 84 where fire has been visible from the highway.  Fire officials say there is still a lot of moisture under the tree canopy and they do not expect a change in fire behavior without a significant weather event.
