DAYVILLE, OR -- A minor weather change made a significant difference for firefighters battling the Corner Creek Fire, 11 miles south of Dayville, now at 26,000 acres. Slightly cooler, moister air Sunday allowed crews to spend more time on creating fire lines. It’s now 10% contained.
Mop up continues on the Sugarloaf Fire, north of Dayville, which is now 95% contained. It has scorched just under 5,000 acres. Many of the crews who had been working on the Sugarloaf Fire are transitioning efforts to Corner Creek.
