MEDFORD, Ore. — Crews watched and waited as the storms moved through, hoping the weather would help, rather than hurt, the firefight in Southern Oregon.
The Douglas Complex reached 100% containment just this week. Fire management has yet to report containment problems created by the storm.
Crews did respond to one lightning started fire near Glide. They quickly put that out with the help of a helicopter.
The Big Windy Complex is now 87% contained. The Whiskey Complex, near Tiller, still has some closures in place, but work has largely moved from fire suppression, to rehabilitation.
Illinois River Road remains closed because of the Labrador Fire, which remains 0% contained.
