one new fire of concern is the Rye Fire
in the far NE corner of the state. It is currently about 5 miles NE of Paradise

the fire was estimated at 800 acres with potential for growth.
upper trough descends on the NW over the weekend and will bring scattered
lightning across eastern Oregon this weekend. The system will also bring cooler
and cloudy weather, which will keep the potential for large fires low. A slow
warming and drying trend will emerge next week as a ridge builds in from the
south with westerly flow across most of the Pacific Northwest. Other active
fires in Oregon are as follows:
IMT3. 19 miles SE of Detroit, OR. Start 7/18. Full Suppression. Timber.

Cause: Lightning. 29,660 acres (+0). 95% containment. Minimal fire behavior.
