36 Pit Fire - Smoke Plume - early Saturday afternoon
Winds from the east-southeast are pushing smoke from the 36 Pit Fire toward the northern portion of the Willamette Valley this afternoon. At this point, most of the smoke remains aloft, although later this evening smoke will likely settle into some valleys. Fire activity is increasing and significant smoke production is expected throughout the rest of the day.
