The Dry Creek Fire is located in a remote and rugged part of Hells Canyon, northeast of Joseph, OR. Fuels include grass, shrubs, and sparse timber. The current fire footprint encompasses an area of approx. 1585 acres. Most fire growth was driven by high winds on Saturday, June 5, 2021. Relatively calm and cool conditions prevailed over the next several days, which moderated fire behavior substantially. The fire was returned to the local unit on June 11 and is in patrol and monitor status.
