Milepost 97 Fire 50% Contained


Despite the hot weather firefighters now have the Milepost 97 fire in Southern Oregon 50% contained.

The fire has burned over 13,000 acres.

The hot weather is causing flare-ups inside the fire lines, but the lines are holding.

Crews are starting to mop up.

A level one evacuation notification remains in effect for public safety. Level one means that residents should be “ready” to evacuate if conditions war-rant. Fire officials say that many areas of Oregon should consider them-selves in level one when fire season is in effect.
