South Valley Fire Fully Contained

The South Valley Fire is now 100 percent contained, and the Oregon Department of Forestry Type 2 Incident Management Team transferred control of the fire location to an ODF Type 4 Team in The Dalles Unit.  The local ODF fire staff will patrol the area and monitor for smokes frequently throughout the remainder of fire season.  Officials say there may be visible smokes in the interior portion of the fire for the remainder of the summer.  The public is advised to call 9-1-1 should they become concerned about any smoke or flame they feel is a threat to structures or resources.  The fire that started last Thursday covered 20,026 acres, burning three primary structures and 15 outbuildings.  The ODF Team 2 expressed appreciation to the community of Dufur for their support.
