Summary of the “Pit 36 Fire” As Of 10:00 September, 15th 2014 (Clackamas County, Oregon)

How The Fire Started:

Origin of Pit 36 Fire Estacada, Oregon

Origin of Pit 36 Fire Estacada, Oregon

At approximately 1500 (3pm Pacific Standard Time) on September a wildfire broke out in rural Clackamas County, Oregon roughly ten miles east of Estacada in the steep canyon within which the Clackamas River flows. The steep terrain, high temperatures, east winds and late-season dry conditions led to the fire spreading rapidly, despite the swift and valiant action of local fire crews. It appears likely that a group of individuals that were target shooting have likely started the blaze however shooting in and of itself does not pose a fire risk. As such, it seems likely that a prohibited activity such as throwing tossing away cigarette butts, an illegal camp fire or incendiary “tracer” type ammunition was happening. Law enforcement and fire officials have stated that an “investigation is underway” but have not released further details at this time. Although a news crew was witnessed heading to the scene at 1700 (5:00pm) on 09-13-2014 most local news agencies were slow to pick up the story.

36 Pit Fire (Estacada, Oregon): Wildfire Grows 10x Over Saturday Night

Saturday at noon, the fire was still being reported as covering only  30-100 acres when it had already grown to over 1,000 acres.

Saturday at noon, the fire was still being reported as covering only 30-100 acres when it had already grown to over 1,000 acres.

The mountainous terrain made access by fire crews slow and hazardous and also allowed the flames to swiftly burn up the steep hill above the rock pit. Initial news reports estimated the blaze to be roughly 30 acres in size although in reality the brisk east winds were quickly pushing the fire onward. As a longtime Clackamas County resident it quickly became clear that the fire was actually much larger than reports as Emergency band scanners were reporting flames over a mile away as the crow flies at a truck weighing station. The official reports soon followed and by noon Sunday the Pit 36 Fire had officially eclipses 1,000 acres engulfed. Fire crews had stated that as of Sunday the forest fire was “zero percent contained” and local campgrounds were closed and the Silver Fox RV Park was promptly evacuated. Residents of Estacada, Beavercreek, Eagle Creek awoke to thick clouds of smoke. Some residents of Estacada reported ash falling like snow.

Air Quality For Clackamas County, Oregon

Areas around Clackamas County, Oregon have been placed under an air quality advisory for “Fire Weather Warning” with air quality ranging from “moderate” to “unhealthy”.

At times, smoke is predicted to reduce visibility to as little as a few miles depending on location. Areas closest to the Pit 36 fire are expected to see the biggest negative impact in air quality.

Molalla Housing Market, Supply & Demand

Molalla Oregon Clackamas County Housing 03-24-14
For this week more homes have been listed on the market than have sold which may indicate some increased competition amongst sellers which often takes the form of price reductions. The Market Action Index has been trending down while inventory of available residential properties for sale has been climbing. And, if this trend of increasing supply and weaker demand continues some Realtors fear that prices may settle a bit*. Now, before this causes any undue alarm it’s worth noting that small price settling and competition amongst sellers is often normal and healthy in a housing market and these small dampers on prices may well keep the housing market stable for the future and lower the chances of another costly bubble. All in all, it’s a great time to buy real estate if you need a great place to live. And conversely, if it’s time for a change of scene for your life and you need to sell you may just be pleasantly surprised with how much we can get you for your home.

As always, call us to learn more and to start your next chapter.
