Cedar Creek Fire (Wildfire)

By Buzz Dean on 08/10/2022

The Cedar Creek Fire began August 1, 2022 when a lightning storm caused 20 to 30 new fires on the Willamette National Forest in Oregon. The fire is located in incredibly steep, inaccessible terrain about 3 miles west of Waldo Lake, north of Highway 58 and 15 miles east of the community of Oakridge. A Type 1 Incident Management Team assumed command of the Cedar Creek Fire on August 5, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. Fire managers will be scouting for opportunities to safely engage and contain the fire while also providing for firefighter safety. Heavy equipment is improving access around the fire area and aircraft are available to support suppression efforts by moderating fire
