Sheridan Fire and Pine Mountain Fire now Contained!

Firecrews on the Sheridan Fire burning near Sunriver and the Pine Mountain Fire east of Bend are reporting 100 percent containment on both fires today. The acreage for both fires remains the same.

Containment doesn't mean "out" so you can expect to see engines and firefighters still working in the area, along with smoke in the interior of the fire from some of the logs or brush that may still be smoldering. It's also not unusual for an occasional pocket of unburned fuel inside the fireline to burn and put up smoke.

Some of the firefighters left the Sheridan Fire and headed to fires in Washington and eastern Oregon; others will head home, rest and be ready to go out to the next new start.
