The fire west of the Tumalo Reservoir remains about 6800 acres after burning for three days.

 

Kevin Larkin with the U.S . Forest Service says things are going well so far.

 

"We anticipate continued success. The fire is pretty well in check and we're on the way to mopping up the fire in the next several days."

 

50 homes remain evacuated in the Skyliners road area, but no structures have been lost or damaged.

 

Larkin thinks this is going to be a long fire season.

 

"A common refrain heard around the fire camp is the experience people had when they saw the column of smoke going up.  Wait !  This is June 7th.  That makes me nervous that we're up for a hefty fire season."

 

The fire remains 25 percent continued and firefighters have made good progress on the east side of the fire and hope to mop up in the coming days.
