Local Wildfires Coming Under Control
The Douglas complex of fires is expected to be fully contained Sunday as crews are being reassigned to other areas. The Big Windy is now listed as 67 percent contained and the number of firefighters assigned to that blaze has now been reduced to 793.
That leaves the Labrador fire with no containment date set but it remains smoldering within the 2,023 acres its size has been estimated at for over a week. Because of its inaccessibility it has been attacked primarily by air. Firefighters continue to keep a wary eye on that blaze.
