Nena Springs Fire and Evacuation Notices Lifted 

The Nena Springs fire on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation has not grown in size since Aug. 20, fire officials said Tuesday.


That fire had grown to about 68,135 acres, and prompted evacuations at the Charley Canyon, South Junction, Culpus Bridge and Wolf Point subdivisions of Warm Springs.

The Nena Springs fire is thought to be human-caused, but the cause is still under investigation. With thunderstorms expected in the area mid-week, fire crews are concerned that "dust devils" could throw some internal embers outside the containment lines.

As crews continue to wrap up work on the fire, officials plan to divert resources elsewhere, to assist with other fires throughout the region.
