Firefighters are close to containing the High Cascades Complex of fires near the Warm Springs Indian Reservation, while the Shadow Lake Fire continues to burn west of Sisters.
The 2,500-acre Badger Butte Fire, the last of the seven fires among the High Cascades Complex, was 85 percent contained Wednesday evening, according to Ken Malgren, spokesman for the High Cascades Complex management team.
The High Cascades Complex, which was started by lightning in late August, has burned close to 110,000 acres and is 95 percent contained.
While the 10,000-acre Shadow Lake Fire near Mount Washington didn’t grow Wednesday, the fire was still only 35 percent contained, said Jeff Liming, spokesman for the Shadow Lake incident management team.
The fire has closed nearly 17 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail between highways 242 and 20 since Sept. 5. Lightning also started the Shadow Lake Fire.
