Firefighters contain Central Oregon fires

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center says a 168-acre wildfire ignited by a downed power line is 75 percent contained.

The Burgess Road Fire started just before 2 p.m. Saturday. High wind helped spread it quickly.

Threatened structures in the Crescent Creek Subdivision of La Pine were evacuated but that order was lifted Saturday night.

The dispatch center says in a release that firefighters overnight improved containment lines and planned Sunday to hold the lines through a second afternoon of high wind.

A seven-acre fire two miles northeast of Crane Prairie Reservoir also began with a power line downed by trees blown over in strong wind.

The fire was mapped at 7 acres and reported to be 100 percent contained Sunday morning.

Crews were mopping up hotspots.
