The Timber Crater 6 Fire is actively burning in mixed conifer in the remote northeast corner of Crater Lake National Park. This is one of several fires ignited by lightning in and around the Park on Sunday, July 15. Several other fires ignited that day.
With the number of new fires in the Northwest this week, firefighting resources are strained. However, the Timber Crater 6 Fire is being aggressively managed for full suppression, commensurate with values at risk and the overriding objective of public and firefighter safety. There are currently no closures in the Park due to this season’s fire activity.
