Gilliam County, OR – Fire resources will continue to work out of the Incident Command Post in Condon Oregon for a few more days. The fire is now 60% contained and 2,865 acres.
The COFMS ICT3 will remain in command for a couple more days. Resources working the fire today include 4 handcrews, 10 engines, 1 dozer, 1 water tender and misc. overhead. Firefighters will continue to look for hotspots and mop-up the fire area within 50-100 feet of the containment lines. Air resources remain available to assist ground crews if needed.
Yesterday dozers and firefighters constructed containment lines on the unchecked pieces of the fire. Occasional smoke columns were seen on the fire as crews burned the unburned fuels between the fire area and the containment lines. There will continue to be potential of unburned pockets of fuels within the fire area to burn and produce smoke.
Some residents are still without power in the fire area. The power company continues to work on restoring power to these properties.
Please drive carefully on Hwy 206 through the fire area as there will continue to be fire resources on the roadways.
