Firefighters Conquer Large Blaze

By Jim McCoy Mon 16th July Newsfire

Oregon's largest wildfire in more than a century has been fully contained after burning more than 900 square miles- more than twice the size of Multnomah County. Fire information officer Trish Hogervorst says the Long Draw Fire in the southeast corner of Oregon was contained on Sunday night after crews took advantage of lower temperatures and higher humidity. On Monday crews were continuing to patrol containment lines and trying to protect large unburned patches inside the fire's perimeter. Some firefighters were being sent home or to other blazes.
