I see T912, T910, T101, T168 and an AA over the southern part of the FNF. Any info.?
It’s the Morgan fire. Highly suggest getting the Watchduty app.
This group is starting to sound like a damn Facebook group. I made assumptions that this was a professional group.

Morgan Fire Morning Update
September 19, 2023
Conditions: Fire resources worked through the night on the Morgan Fire, burning on the Paisley Ranger District of the Fremont-Winema National Forest, 8 miles north of Quartz Mountain. The fire is approximately 500-600 acres. Air resources, including heavy tankers and type 1 helicopters will be working the Morgan fire. Multiple resources, including hand crews, engines, and dozers, are working in the south end of the fire, at the north end of the Coleman Rim roadless area, using direct suppression tactics.
Local incident command transitioned to a South Central Oregon Fire Management Partnership Type 3 team at 7 a.m.
Weather: Weather over the next few days will generate potential for active fire behavior. North winds along with high ridgetop winds and low relative humidity (RH) will produce critical fire weather over the fire area. Possible moisture on Thursday may affect the development of the fire.
Evacuations: a Level I (Be Ready) evacuation, issued by Lake County Emergency Management, remains in place for the area described in the attached map.
Morgan Fire Morning Update – September 20, 2023
The Morgan Fire is now approximately 1200 acres, located 8 miles north of Quartz Mountain. A portion of the fire is within the Coleman Rim roadless area. Safety issues included poor visibility, snags, rough terrain, thick vegetation, rolling debris, and narrow roads. These issues made it difficult for night operations to safely access the south end of the fire. Fire resources will continue to strengthen the north lines today, using them as an anchor point to continue constructing fireline on the east side, wrapping around to the south.
Firefighters expect fire behavior to be similar to yesterday due to predicted 25mph afternoon gusts.
Type 2 Incident Management Team Pacific Northwest Team 7 is arriving today to help support firefighting efforts and will take command of the incident on Thursday Morning. Fire camp is being set up at the Lake County Fairgrounds. The area in and around the Lake County Fairgrounds is expected to see an increase in fire traffic, and the public should use caution when driving near the fairgrounds.
Fire officials urge members of the public to avoid the area of the fire for their own and firefighter safety. Roads are narrow enough that additional vehicles in the area may block fire resources and prevent them from responding in a timely fashion. There is a Temporary Flight Restriction in place for the airspace over the fire.
A Level I (Be Ready) evacuation, issued by Lake County Emergency Management, remains in place for the area described in the attached map.
• Level 1 evacuation means “BE READY” for potential evacuation. Be aware of danger in your area and monitor emergency services websites and media outlets for information. Prepare yourself and belongings for evacuation and consider movement of persons with special needs, mobile property and pets and livestock.
• Level 2 evacuation means “BE SET” to evacuate. Be ready to leave at a moment’s notice; there is a significant danger to your area. Residents may voluntarily relocate to a shelter or with family/friends outside the affected area. You may have time to gather necessary items, but doing so is at your own risk.
• Level 3 evacuation means “GO NOW” – leave immediately! Danger is current or imminent. If you choose to ignore this advisement, understand that emergency services may not be able to assist you further. DO NOT delay to gather belongings or make efforts to protect your home.
