Wildfire smoke affecting Prineville

The Akawana fire, about 13 miles north of Sisters and four miles west of Geneva, has grown to about 2000 acres, according to the Oregon Department of Forestry Central Oregon District. Steady winds from the west are driving the fire, which was sparked by lightning Tuesday June 7.
The air quality rating in the Prineville area is currently moderate, while surrounding areas are still good. To keep an eye on air quality conditions in the area visit: http://www.deq.state.or.us/aqi/index.aspx or subscribe to Enviroflash Air Quality Alerts http://www.enviroflash.info/ to receive air quality information for where you live.
Earlier today the evacuation notice was upgraded from level one “get ready” to level two “get set.” People in the area should evacuate if the level is raised to three.
Updates on the fire can be found at: http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4772/
The Central Oregon District is also posting updates on its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ODFCentralOregon/ and on Twitter (@ODF_COD).


  1. This seems to the only online indication there is a fire in Sherman County, just W of the JohnDay River (flame icon in graphic above, to SE of the two green icons that appear to be near Mt Hood). Smoke from that is having respiratory impacts at least 30 mi SE.
