Area and road closure to be reduced on the HK Complex

PENDLETON, Ore. Forest officials will reduce the area and road closure for the HK Complex to provide access to Umatilla National Forest lands not impacted by the wildfire or suppression efforts.
Effective Aug. 22, 2019, at 5 p.m. (pacific time), Forest Service Road (FSR) 21 will be open to through traffic. All roads that spur off FSR 21 between FSR 140 and FSR 2110 will remain closed. Both FSR 140 and FSR 2110 will be open. A full description of the area closure is available at the end of this release or on the Umatilla National Forest website at
The HK Complex is estimated at 2,707 acres and 95% contained, but the fire is still active within the interior. The public is asked to avoid entering the remaining closure area, which is still in place for public and firefighter safety. Firefighters continue to conduct suppression and repair activities, including mopping up hot spots and hazard tree removal. The HK Complex is located approximately 15 miles north of Monument, Oregon.
Fire officials want to remind everyone that the current fire danger rating remains at HIGH and Public Use Restrictions involving chainsaw use are in effect.
