SISTERS, OR -- Winds shifted, Sunday afternoon, pushing smoke and ash from the Milli Fire back over Black Butte Ranch and Sisters. Fire managers expect those conditions to extend at least through Monday as warmer and drier weather increases fire activity.

 

More than 650 people are working the blaze, which started with lightning west of Sisters, two weeks ago. As of Monday morning, the Milli Fire is 32% contained at just over 18,000 acres. If conditions allow, fire managers plan to conduct more aerial ignitions Monday, to establish a lower intensity fire in the yet unburned area in the middle of existing containment lines. 
 
Level 1 and Level 2 pre-evacuation notices remain in place. A public meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday at Sisters High School.
