Prineville – As high temperatures, low humidity and a red flag warning continue today, crews remain diligent with patrolling and mop up throughout the Grizzly Fire area. The 195 acre fire area was reported at 75% containment last night with firefighters targeting 95% containment by the end of the day. The COFMS Type 3 Incident Management Team is planning to transition command back to the local unit, Oregon Department of Forestry’s Central Oregon District, this evening. Through the weekend, firefighters will continue monitoring and extinguishing any final hot spots.
The Grizzly Fire was reported on Monday July 3rd in the afternoon, burning near Grizzly Mountain Road approximately nine miles northwest of Prineville.  The fire area is on private lands protected by the Oregon Department of Forestry, Crook County Fire and Rescue, and the Crooked River National Grassland.  The fire is human caused and under investigation.
