Every Lookout in Oregon

Hershberger Mountain Lookout Saved

What a bad summer for fires. Numerous lightning-started fires in southern Oregon have been labeled the High Cascades Complex Fires. The lookout on Hershberger Mountain has been threatened by one of those, the Pup Fire. Fortunately they wrapped it and it seems to have been saved.

From August 31: Burnout operations around Hershberger Lookout successfully protected the structures and radio repeaters from the Pup Fire (1,410 ac.).

From September 4: Firefighters will monitor the Pup Fire and continue point protection on the Hershberger Lookout and the adjacent telecommunication site.
