Patrols Watching For Flare-Ups At Bootleg Fire Site

(Lakeview, OR)  --  Containment of the Bootleg Fire is nearly complete.  Patrols are driving the hundreds of miles of roads around the fire watching for flare-ups.  Crews are starting to break down equipment, so it can be sent to other fires.  Two fires on the southwest corner of the Bootleg Fire, the Walrus and Yainax fires, are also mostly contained.  Burned Area Emergency Response Teams are now moving in to minimize impacts from the fire which include flooding, debris flow potential, and increased soil erosion.  The Bootleg Fire burned  413-thousand-765 acres, or 647 square miles.
