Klamath County Fire Approaches Containment
Firefighters appear to have the upper hand on the Ferguson fire, burning on private land in Klamath County.
By Monday afternoon, the fire was listed as 75% contained on 200 acres.
The fire was first reported on Friday, and quickly burned down three structures and threatened several more, forcing evacuation orders.
Those orders had been dialed back to less urgent advisories by early Monday. The fire zone is 30 miles east of Klamath Falls, five miles north of Beatty.
South Central Oregon Fire Management Partnership reports indicate an early attack from the ground and the air helped keep the fire from spreading.
