Firefighters were able to complete a line around a fire near Rowena overnight and begin mop-up on its interior. Mop-up continues today, with a focus on some rugged terrain in the fire area that could not be accessed safely during the night. Christie Shaw of the Oregon Department of Forestry says there was a limited amount of visible smoke and flames this morning. The fire has been mapped at fourteen acres and has 50% containment. The fire was initially reported Sunday afternoon burning in grass, scrub oak and ponderosa pine near Rowena, and overhead support from two Washington Department of Natural Resources air tankers and a federal helicopter helped slow its spread. The Oregon Department of Forestry is being assisted by resources from the Mt. Hood National Forest, Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, and Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue. The Wasco County Sheriff’s Office cancelled the Level 1 evacuation advisory for residences in the area Monday morning. Mayer State Park is being used to fill fire engines and for other support activities. Please be cautious in the area. Officials say the fire is human caused and under investigation.
