August 12, 2015

CableCrossingFire_2015The Cable Crossing Fire was reported burning on forestlands on Tuesday, July 28, 2015. To-date the fire is 85% contained, a huge success given the extreme conditions. The fire burned approximately 1,857 Acres of public and private land, including a portion of Seneca Jones Timber Company’s land. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.



We want to thank all of the valiant men and women who have served to attack this fire. This was a colossal collaboration between multiple organizations, including:

• Douglas Forest Protective Association
• Bureau of Land Management
• United States Forest Service
• Coos Forest Protective Association
• Oregon Department of Forestry
• Oregon Department of Transportation
• Douglas County Parks Department
• Douglas County Sheriff’s Office
• Glide Rural Fire Protection District
• Pacific Power & Light
• Lone Rock Resources
• Forest Investment Associates
• Roseburg Forest Products




We were honored and impressed to have served and worked with each and every one of you.  We appreciate the recognition of our internal staff’s efforts from the Oregon Department of Forestry and the long hours spent fighting this blaze.

We want to take the time to remind everyone that Seneca’s private timberlands remain closed to the public due to EXTREME fire danger. Additionally, the Bureau of Land Management issued a Fire Closure Order in the Cable Crossing Fire vicinity. Douglas Forest Protective Association has announced a ban on campfires, including those within campgrounds, until fire conditions improve.

This is a necessary action as fire fighting resources are stretched thin within the State and we are calling on resources from other states, including Canada.  Your continual understanding and cooperation are appreciated.
