Milepost 87 Fire Now 80% Contained

Milepost 87 fire officials have lowered all Level 2 “get set” evacuation advisories to Level 1.  Wasco County Public Information Officer Stephanie Krell said the 150-acre fire at the east end of The Dalles is now at 80% containment.  Crews remain on the scene but there are no active fires.  Three primary structures were destroyed as a result of this fire:  one brick and mortar home and two mobile homes.  In addition, one mobile home, one outbuilding, and two pump houses suffered damage in the fire.  Fire officials say the fire season is ramping up, so they ask people to stay diligent and help protect the region from wildfires.
