A fire reported 17 miles southeast of Wasco adjacent to Highway 206 in the John Day River drainage burned 4,000 acres before the Bureau of Land Management declared it in mop-up. The fire was first reported near Highway 206 milepost 15 in Sherman County. The Sherman County Sheriff’s Office says it was about one mile south of Cottonwood Canyon State Park, on both sides of the John Day River, and grew rapidly to the east. It burned on BLM, state, and private lands. Firefighters on the ground were supported by four single-engine air tankers and two large air tankers.
