Santiam Fire History

As the Northwest Incident Management Team concluded on September 9, 2020, the fires that destroyed the homes of Santiam Canyon were not caused by a wildland forest fire; rather these fires were caused by a series of downed power lines. The Management Team explained “Originally listed at 469 acres, the fire has grown overnight to over 131,000 acres driven by high winds and extremely dry fuels. Originally named the Beachie Creek fire, it has been renamed the Santiam Fire acknowledging that the Beachie Creek fire no longer was the main cause of rapid-fire growth and was instead fed by a series of small fires largely caused by downed power lines and other ignition sources throughout the area.

The catastrophic losses of the wildfire could have been prevented; these community-destroying fires were not inevitable. Utility companies could have shut off the power, invested in their infrastructure to minimize the risk of fire, and taken other reasonable steps to operate their systems to eliminate the risk of fire.
