Peavine Creek Fire, 123 acres, contained

On Wednesday evening, firefighters continued to strengthen containment lines around the Peavine Creek Fire north of Glendale in Douglas County. Higher humidity due to fog aided their efforts. Priority has now shifted from strengthening containment lines to mopping up hot spots. Firefighters will start from the outside of the fire and work in, with the goal of extinguishing 100 percent of the heat and smoke within the entire fire. On scene at the fire today are three hand crews, five water tenders, one bulldozer and various industrial forest landowner representatives.
