Fire officials expand the Cedar Creek Fire closure for firefighter and public safety

Additional closures are anticipated

Westfir, Ore.- Sept. 7, 2022— The closure order for the Cedar Creek Fire has been expanded due to its rapid fire growth. The fire was caused by a lightning storm and is at 18,143 acres and is 12% contained. Highway 58 is not included in the revised closure.

This closure includes several roads, trails and areas including, but not limited to:
Roads: Forest Road 2417, Forest Road 1934, and Forest Road 19 (Aufderheide Drive) from milepost 20 (just east of Kiahanie Campground) to milepost 35 (south of Roaring River Campground)

Trails: West side of the Jim Weaver Loop (Waldo Lake) from the Shadow Bay boat ramp to Forest Road 4636-514 and Erma Bells located in the Three Sisters Wilderness

Campgrounds: Blair Lake; Irish and Taylor Lake; Islet; North Waldo; Harrison Horse Camp; Skookum Creek; Shadow Bay; Box Canyon; Box Staging Area/Horse Camp; and all surrounding dispersed camping areas

“It is truly a collaborative effort with community leaders and local law enforcement to ensure that community needs are being met and that wildfire threats and operations are clearly understood,” said Middle Fork District Ranger Molly Juillerat. “Our first priority is to protect the health, safety, and well-being of the fire management community and the public we serve.”

Campfires are still prohibited on the entire forest due to high fire danger and ongoing active fires. Review a detailed map, the full text of the closure order, and more information on fire restrictions at
