Crews monitoring NCW’s largest wildfire this morning set a Level 2 “be ready” evacuation status for areas near Mazama and Winthrop as the blaze began moving south in two mountain drainages. Managers of the Diamond Creek Fire scheduled a 6 p.m. community meeting today at the Mazama Community Club, 512 Goat Creek Road, to outline the situation as the fire moves south in Monument Creek drainage and along Pat Creek near Mazama. The Monument Creek area is considered a heavy fuel load region, fire supervisors said, with timber and brush dried out by the hot summer.
