Firefighters triumphed in their battle to keep the flames of the Pole Creek Fire from breaking through containment lines this afternoon.  That was despite wind, heat, and low humidity.  The fire did manage to burn right up to established evaluation lines.  

 

Yesterday, the fire was very active and grew to a scary 15,000 acres.  Today’s estimate is not in yet.

 

Because of conditions, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office issued another PRE-evacuation alert this afternoon to residents in areas including Crossroads,  Edington, and Remuda Roads and the south side of the City of Sisters.  Residents should be ready to leave instantly IF an evacuation order is given.  Again…this is just a pre-alert.
