Sisters, OR – Despite continued hot and breezy afternoon conditions, fire behavior has been moderate on the Grandview Fire, which is still estimated to be approximately 5,723 acres burning on private lands protected by the Oregon Department of Forestry and the Crooked River National Grassland managed lands. Firefighters were able to make good progress holding and securing lines around the fire today.

Heavy air tankers dropping retardant were able to assist crews constructing fire line on the southeast portion of the fire while structure protection units led by the Oregon State Fire Marshal’s office continued point protection efforts. This work will tie into existing dozer line on the northeast section of the fire where firefighters are holding the line and beginning to mop up the perimeter to achieve additional containment.

The southwest portion of the fire held within existing fire lines today and crews were able to begin securing fire lines and mopping up. The northwest portion of the fire saw some increased activity this afternoon, but crews and dozers have been actively engaged in constructing fire line and have been assisted by helicopters cooling hot spots.

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for westerly winds 10-20 mph (gusts to 25 mph) coupled with low relative humidity on Wednesday and Thursday.  This will challenge efforts to keep the fire within established control lines.
