Tremendous Progress on the Mohr Fire in Douglas County
The Mohr Fire in Douglas County is nearly 80% contained after crews reevaluated the total acres burned to be around 6,100 acres rather than 6,400.
Winds continued blowing from the south with a slight wind change during the day. Southeast Washington Interagency Incident Management Team (SEWAIMT) spokesperson Ben Shearer said they were prepared for the change and held down the perimeter.
Around 6 p.m., evacuation levels were lowered to a Level 1.
Shearer said they will be handing this over to local resources on August 13 for the mop-up stage.
