[Condon, Oregon] Minimal fire activity was observed yesterday on the Stubblefield and Lonerock Fires as firefighters continued to mop up remaining hot spots within control lines. Interior burning was observed on the Jennies Peak but posed no threat to the control lines. A cooler, more moist air mass has helped firefighters gain considerable depth on the control lines and they will continue to work today to identify and extinguish any remaining hot spots.
Stubblefield Fire– The fire is currently 95% contained and is 54,221 acres.
Lonerock Fire – This fire is now 95% contained and 5,056 acres.
Jennie’s Peak – This fire is 90% contained and 45,956 acres.
Today will be the final day Northwest Team 7 will be managing these fires. Firefighting resources will be remaining to patrol the fires into the future. We would like to express our appreciation for the support we’ve received from the local fire and Sheriff’s departments of Gilliam and Wheeler Counties and the communities they serve.
