9/8/15: Statewide Update for Oregon

Statewide, current air quality in Oregon is good. This is a nice respite from the poor air quality much of the state experienced at various times during the month of August. In recent days there have been no new large fires and only minimal growth on existing large fires. There is some concern the weather will continue to generally warm up and remain dry through the week; this could lead to elevated burning conditions over existing large fires. However, the encouraging news is that new large fire potential is low and no significant lightning is expected until possibly Sunday. Please continue to monitor this website and we will bring you new information about any wildfire smoke impacts as they develop.


  1. Has there been any changes? I live in the Southern Coast and am experiencing many respiratory issues.

  2. I would like to respond to your comment, and will assume you are located in Coos Bay based on your username. I don't see that there have been any significant increases in existing wildfires in your vicinity, and I don't see that any new large fires have started in your area recently. Do you believe you are being impacted by smoke from a wildfire?

    1. Most definitely. It's better now, we had rain for the last 2 days.

  3. Wowzers ton of smoke blowing across molalla...is this a new fire or coming from the county line fire??

  4. With respect to Molllala, I don't have any explanation for smoke in that area. Can you please provide any more details? Thank you.
