Burnout operations are giving firefighters the upper hand as they battle the last active fire of the High Cascades Complex of wildfires near Warm Springs. Those fires have now charred about 108,000 acres. Containment is currently at 85%.  And the Shadow Lake Fire, northwest of Sisters, is now mapped at roughly 10,500 acres. And the Dollar Lake Fire on Mt. Hood is estimated at 5800 acres, is 35% contained. All of these fires were sparked by lightning during storms that moved thru Oregon in late August.

 

It’s the conditions weary fire crews have been waiting for. Only one more day of warm temperatures and lightning strikes are expected. Jeri Mills with the Northwest Coordination Center says containment is increasing on the Monastery Complex near Goldendale Washington as well as the Dollar Lake Fire on Mount Hood.
