Owens Fire 85 Percent Contained

The 20-acre Owens Fire south of Hood River is listed by the Oregon Department of Forestry as 85 percent contained.  Full mop-up operations are underway.  Due to the large, felled timber on the site, full containment may be a few days off, but fire behavior is minimal and spread is not expected.   The U.S. Forest Service assisted ODF with equipment and personnel in the firefighting effort.   The Owens Fire occurred on forestland owned by Hood River County.  Cause of  the fire is under investigation.
