Bootleg Fire Now 96-Percent Contained

(Lakeview, OR) -- The Bootleg Fire in southern Oregon is nearing full containment after charring over 413-thousand acres. Fire officials say the blaze is now 96-percent contained as of late last night. Firefighters have made significant progress building containment lines on the northeastern edge of the fire, where terrain has made it difficult. Meanwhile, two more fires started last week near the southwestern edge of the Bootleg Fire. The Walrus and Yainax fires were kept from growing with heavy work from helicopters. Firefighters have hose lines surrounding the fires to keep them from growing.
