PRINEVILLE, OR -- A small wildfire 12 miles north of Prineville prompted level one evacuation warnings, Sunday afternoon. Resources quickly attacked the 24-acre Allen Creek Fire from the ground and air and it was fully lined by last night. Evacuation warnings were lifted after about two hours.
Near Dufur, The South Valley Fire, is now about 40% contained at just over 20,000 acres. Firefighters will spend the next few days mopping up and attacking hot spots.
In southern Oregon, more state resources are headed to the Sugar Pine fire, east of Grants Pass. The Governor declared a conflagration Friday for the blaze that's now nearly 9,000 acres. And, more National guard firefighters are working the 38,000-acre Taylor Creek Fire, which has been especially tough due to rugged terrain; it's now 38% contained.
