BACKGROUND

The Klondike Fire started on July 15, 2018 by lightning. It was originally being managed under the Natchez Fire, and has been separated out for communications so as to lessen confusion.

On July 23, 2018, management of both the Klondike and Natchez Fires was transferred to Pacific Northwest Team 3. Fire managers are continuing to utilize available resources to suppress both the Natchez and Klondike fires while minimizing risk to the public and firefighters.

Firefighters are utilizing the Chetco Bar and Laborador Fire scars to stop overall fire expansion on the west and east. Dozers are being used to open up roads from the Illinois River Road to the wilderness boundary south of the fire to be used as alternate containment lines.
