Central Oregon – The Tolo Mountain Fire burning on the Deschutes National Forest remains 41 acres and is now 75% contained.
With increased containment, crews will begin leaving the incident tomorrow to be reassigned to new or existing fires in the west. Local unit firefighters will continue mopping up the fire area until full containment is reached.
The local Type 3 Incident Management Team under the command of Jason Gibb will be transitioning management of the fire back to the Crescent Ranger District today at 8:00pm. Once full containment is reached, the District will continue to monitor the area in the coming days.
This will be the final update for the Tolo Mountain Fire, which was started by lighting on July 27, 2022.
