Work On Central Oregon Fires Continues

The containment level for the Scott Canyon fire in Gilliam County went up to 75 percent Monday morning.  According to the Northwest Interagency Coordination Center, the fire has burned 33,587 acres in grass and brush in moderate to steep terrain about nine miles northwest of Condon.  The fire did threaten ranches with residences, along with barns and other outbuildings.  Fire officials hope to fully contain the fire on Monday.  The cause is not yet determined.  Meanwhile, a 5,000 acre wildfire is burning on the Warm Springs Reservation.  The Northwest Interagency Coordination Center reported very little activity on the Rattlesnake Fire this morning.  It is burning in grass about seven miles northeast of Warm Springs.
