Rattlesnake Fire 80% Contained

The Rattlesnake Fire ten miles northeast of Warm Springs is now listed at 80 percent containment.  The Northwest Interagency Coordination Center says the fire grew in size Monday to 9,225 acres, but crews made good progress in building line and securing the perimeter of the fire.  One area of concern Tuesday was on the northwest portion of the fire perimeter where the fire crossed the Warm Springs River.  Crews made good progress securing that area Monday night, and if it holds, the fire may be near 100 percent containment by Wednesday.  Structural protection is still in place for residences in the Culpus Bridge area.  The Webster Flat road near the Wolf Point subdivision and Highway 8 east of the Kah-Nee- Ta Resort are still closed to the general public.
