Cowlitz Complex At 34% Containment

The Cowlitz Complex of fires in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest is 34% contained with a total of 695 acres and 342 personnel.  Forest Service officials say firefighters worked around the 22-acre Mission Fire near Forest Road 21 to contain the fire from a spillover that occurred on Saturday.  There was slight growth in the Grassy Mountain Fire but it still poses no threat to the communities of Randle or Packwood.  Crews will continue to monitor and patrol the Mission and other smaller fires in the forthcoming days.  There was less smoke Sunday and it will likely be light this week, although fires from outside the area may add to regional haze.  There are 30 fires in the complex.  The fires started August 25 after a lightning event across the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.  All fires are being managed under full suppression strategy.
