17,500 acres with 15% containment; that's what fire bosses report is the latest numbers for the Pole Creek Fire near Sisters.

 

Kristin Bowles, spokesperson for the Pole Creek Fire says crews are mopping up behind the containment lines and may also decide to start some "back burns" to rid the fire of fuels, and that could cause more smoke.

 

She says Sisters residents that need to get out of the smoke have an option.  "For those in the Sisters area that are impacted by the smoke, Red Cross does have a respite at Sisters Elementary, where they can get out of the smoke. They have filtered air circulation, so exposure to the smoke is minimal. And we are planning a community meeting Thursday, September 20th at 7:30 p.m. in the Sisters Elementary."

 

Bowles says the weather forecast is not ideal for firefighters; there will be a continued inversion layer keeping the smoke closer to the ground and hotter temperatures with wind could make the fire unstable.
