Camp Creek Complex of Fires Mop-Up
The Camp Creek Complex, 30 miles northeast of Medford, includes several small fires on the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest in southern Oregon. The Bailey Fire, Camp Creek Fire and Cluster Fire are contained and are in patrol status. Three small fires in the Seven Lakes Basin are also in patrol status. Firefighters are working to construct and improve lines on the fire on the north slope of Mt. McLoughlin.

Smith Rock Cluster, is a group of small fires in a basin north of Smith Rock. Crews found an additional fire in the cluster yesterday. Work continued as they build and strengthen fireline.
Fire 666 is less than one acre in size, east of the Smith Rock Cluster. Firefighters worked on containment.

Mop-up continued on a 40 acre fire in Sky Lakes Wilderness is about 90% contained. Crews lined and mopped up a fire in the Wickiup Creek Drainage. It is being patrolled today.

Fuels began drying out on Fire 790, about 300 acres in the Sky Lakes Wilderness. Firefighters continued implementing the indirect suppression strategy by clearing ladder and ground fuels from alongside the roads that will be used for containment lines.
