Marker Name: The B&B Complex Fire
Marker Text: The B&B Complex fire began as two separate lightning-caused fires, the Booth and Bear Butte fires, in August 2003. At its peak it burned 10,000 acres (about 15 square miles) per day. When it was finally out in late September, it had burned more than 90,000 acres or about 140 square miles on National Forest, state, private and Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs land.
This fire came on the heels of the human-caused Link fire that burned about 3,600 acres southwest of Suttle Lake from July 5-13, 2003, and the lightning-caused Cache Mountain fire that burned about 3,900 acres in the same general area from July 23-August 1, 2002.
