Miller Road Fire

Estimated Size: 11,186

Containment: 25%

 Cautious optimism was the tone on day two of the Miller Road Fire. Light winds and moderate temperatures on Wednesday allowed Oregon State Fire Marshal (OSFM) task forces and Oregon Department of Forestry crews to start mop up operations.

The fire is still estimated at 11,186 acres and is now 25 percent contained. Today’s weather will remain moderate, giving crews another great opportunity ahead of next week’s forecasted triple-digit heat.
