WALLOWA — Rain, steady since 11 p.m. Monday, spelled relief for 250 firefighters on the line of a 225-acre fire about 6 miles southwest of Wallowa.

The Anniversary fire made one big run Sunday, said Bob Both, assistant fire management officer. Since then the temperature has dropped and the humidity has increased, so the fire has not grown significantly. Overnight rainfall at Lostine was measured at a quarter inch.

The fire was spotted Sunday afternoon about 9 miles south of Highway 82 along Big Canyon Road. The staging area is at the fish hatchery and the public is being asked not to use the road because of heavy fire traffic.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. The fire started by Deer Creek Road and is now burning on the ridge between there and Sage Creek.

Most of the fine fuels that were burning have been extinguished, mainly in the interior, Both said. Four air tankers dropped 20 loads of retardant Sunday and Monday.

Crews are constructing a fire line around the blaze. If favorable conditions persist, the fire may be contained this week, Both said. Mop-up work has already begun.

There is some private timber land about 1 mile north of the fire, but the general wind direction has kept the fire from moving that way, Both said.

There were some safety concerns about falling rocks in the steep terrain but there have been no injuries.

A Type III team is managing the fire. It consists of three engines, two dozers and 10 crews.
