Crews Demobilize From Miller Road Fire

Work on the Miller Road Fire in south Wasco County began to wind down on Sunday, as task forces and other resources began to be progressively demobilized back to their home agencies.  Containment of the fire Monday morning was listed at 98 percent, while total acreage was adjusted down to 10,847 acres.  Hand crews have been focusing on mop-up operations along the 25 miles of the fire’s perimeter and around structures with the goal of establishing a cold black containment line preventing any lingering interior fire from escaping.  The Northwest Incident Management Team that has been managing the fire will begin demobilizing resources today as the need for fire personnel decreases.  A smaller incident management organization will remain on the fire comprised of two hand crews and engines will take over patrolling the fire and continue mop-up.  Officials stress firefighters will remain vigilant on the fire line as the weather is predicted to become hotter and drier for the next couple of days.  The Wasco County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday afternoon lifted all evacuation advisories for the fire.
