It’s a pleasant surprise for crews fighting the Dollar Lake Fire burning near Mt. Hood the weather has been more cooperative than expected.  Containment is now up to 25 percent on the Dollar Lake Fire near Mt. Hood  thanks to a little assist from Mother Nature. “Paul Norman of the Northwest Interagency Coordination Center says the fire stands at about 7 square miles. Meantime, the Shadow Lake was on the move Wednesday forcing to move the fire command center to the Hoo Doo Ski Area. It’s fire now burned about 9 square miles and no containment date is set. Norman says they expect some erratic fire behavior there today.  The latest mapping on the Shadow Lake fire has its size at about 6000 acres, and a new closure area is in effect related to the Shadow Lake Fire. The closure now extends to the west along the southeast quadrant of Highways 20 and 126. This includes a portion of the McKenzie River Trail. At this time the Clear Lake and Cold Water Cove Recreation areas do remain open.
