CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- The Oregon Department of Forestry Southwest Oregon District says about 200 firefighters are still looking for hotspots in the Garner Complex.

Command was transitioned back to ODF Thursday from the Florida Forest Services Red Team. 

Melissa Cano, Public Information Officer, said the control of the fires have allowed some out-of-area resources to leave to work on other fires.

"The fire is not a worry to anyone anymore, it's not a threat to homes, it's not a threat to our community, we're just in the mop-up stage," Cano said. 

The complex includes the 7,816 acre Grave Creek, 836 acre Pleasant Creek, 228 acre Spencer Creek, and 6 acre King Mountain Fires.

The entire complex is holding at 8,886 acres and is now 87 percent contained.

ODF says crews will not leave until reaching full containment. 

"When we reach 100 percent containment, that means all of our firefighting resources can walk away and we know that there is no chance that it can restart so that's why we take it really seriously to deem something 100 percent contained and we take our time to get there," Cano said. 

All of the communities surrounding the Garner Complex will remain at a Level One, “Be Ready,” evacuation notice until mop up operations are complete and the Sheriff’s Office deems there to be no lingering threats due to fire activity.
