OR forestry officials say the state's wildfires have scorched at least 822 square miles (2,128 square. kilometers). "I can not believe that I saw the smoke bomb and how quickly it turned to this trail of smoke, to billowing fire, to this huge thing". Evacuation orders for those living on Mabee Mines Road and on private roads connecting to it were downgraded from Level 2 to Level 1 (be aware/get ready).

The fire forced the evacuation of almost 300 homes between Sunday and Monday in Cascade Locks but notched minimal growth overnight heading into Monday. On Tuesday night, the Multnomah County Sheriff tweeted that "the fire has slowed way down for now".

Several schools in the affected areas are still closed, including those in the Corbett and North Wasco County school districts in OR and the Skamania School District 2 in Washington. A Red Cross shelter was set up at the Skamania County Fairgrounds, across the Columbia River in Stevenson, Washington. Officials are asking people to not drive into areas impacted by the fire.
