Deception Fire Update 8/28 - John Cook ARA
The Deception Fire grew 235 acres on Tuesday 8/26. Poor dispersion and light NW winds have kept the smoke in the Oakridge community through the mid-afternoon. The Oakridge Air Quality monitor is currently in the Unhealthy level but smoke is slowly lifting with increased NW winds. There is light smoke along Hwy 58 and down the Middle Fork of the Willamette. Moderate growth continued today and similar conditions are expected tomorrow.
