If I'm reading this correctly, they're saying it's still at 42 acres.  It looks like they may have allocated a few more resources to fight the fire.  I wonder if it was started by logging operations?

It looks like the thermal images aren't showing any hot spots on today's map.  Maybe they have it under control?

Edit:  I just looked at another map, and it seems to show hot spots in the area.  Here's the link: http://wildlandfire.maps.arcgi.....5f4db6caf5

Looks like that new fire is just east of the Collawash at Dunno Creek.  Like you said it must be a new one.  I found a map that had four hotspots from thermal imaging at Dunno Creek, but couldn't find any other information.

I called Clackamas RD office and they didn't know anything about it.  They told me to call dispatch, so I did.  It sounds like they know about it, but then they put me on hold and I gave up after a couple of minutes.

I decided to call again and they said it's at about 50 acres now and is being addressed.  I guess we'll have to wait a bit until more info shows up on inciweb.

Here's a link to the dispatch website:  https://gacc.nifc.gov/nwcc/districts/CCCC/

I was poking around and found that they've given it a name: Jazz.

Thanks Kirk for looking into this, the fire went from nothing to large in the short period of time I was waiting for the eclipse.

That is so cool, Paul.  What a great spot to view the eclipse!  And you got a GREAT shot of the total eclipse.

Looks like that fire might be the French Fire, which has been burning for about 10 days - says it was a lightning strike.  It is just about directly south of East Mountain:

Either that, or it is so new it isn't on inciweb yet.  There are quite a few fires in the Willamette Forest this year.

Some photos from my East Mtn eclipse outing. While I was up there a fire popped up south of my location and obscured Jeff in smoke - looked like a new fire to me.
