    Default OR-ODF-Big Windy-?

    Does anyone have a good location for this complex? 17 miles NW of Merlin is a whole bunch of ground :/ Perhaps an interactive map? The inciweb page is just min. info right now.

    I was referring to this post here, that seems like a better location for the fire.

    The Big Windy Complex consists of 3 fires: The Big Windy Fire, Calvert Peak Fire, and Windy 16 Fire. PNW Team 2(IC: Chris Schulte), a national type 1 IMT took control of the complex at 0600 on July 29, 2013. The fires are burning northwest of Merlin, OR, south of the Rogue River.

    The Big Windy Complex started Friday morning, July 26, 2013, after lightning ignited several fires on Bureau of Land Management(BLM) lands protected by the Oregon Department of Forestry(ODF).

    MOds- I may have the ident wrong on this one as it is BLM land protected by ODF not an RSF fire

    ODF says burn out ops and an interior island. Heard from an ignition crew member yesterday and what is there is more active than expected. They are rather confident of the current containment. Next week they should be getting WETTING RAINS.
