Indian Creek Fire Update Friday morning

The Indian Creek Fire grew to 83 acres over the last couple of days. Heavy helicopters dropped over 100,000 gallons of water on areas showing persistent smoke on Wednesday and continued the assault Thursday. Firefighters will continue to identify potential contingency lines, take hourly weather observations and monitor fire behavior. There was increased fire activity on Thursday, the most in about 10 days. That was stopped with bucket drops. Much of the smoke in the area is coming from fires throughout the region and British Columbia, it is not all from Indian Creek. 64 personnel are currently working the fire. There is no camping allowed in the closure area. The Northern portion of Eagle Creek Trail #440 off I-84 is open for almost 5 miles. The Pacific Crest Trail is open. Water is available for PCT hikers at Indian Springs, but not Wahtum Lake. The estimated containment date is Saturday, September 30th.
