Crews continue to hold fires in Central Oregon in check


Darlene Fire

Firefighters continued to work the perimeter of the Darlene Fire burning southeast of La Pine.

Containment bumped from 5 to 35 percent as they extinguished hot spots and strengthened lines.

The fire remains at 686 acres.

Fire officials expect that containment number to increase with favorable forecast of low wind and higher humidity levels.
