It's burned 27 thousand acres to date and is 85 percent contained.

 

U.S. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden met with U.S. Forest Service Officials Tuesday to assess what went right and wrong this season.

46 thousand acres burned in Central Oregon forests this year, which is below normal.

 

Senator Wyden feels we need to do more thinning and prevention work in the forests to prevent bigger fires in the future.
