S-503 Fire 10% Contained

(Portland, OR)  --  Crews are starting to make some progress on the S-503 fire burning near Mt. Hood.  Fire officials say the blaze is now ten-percent contained at about 62-hundred acres as of early this morning.  The fire is just two miles from Highway 26 on the Warm Springs Reservation.  Level 2 "Get Ready" evacuations remain in place for Walters Corners and the community of Pine Grove, according to a fire department spokesman from the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.  Smoke from the fire is moving southeast, which should help clear the air for the Portland metropolitan area, according to KGW Meteorologist Matt Zeffino.  The fire has been burning since Friday afternoon and can be seen from the Mt. Hood Meadows ski resort.
