Coincidentally, the new fires emerged as the 51,000-acre Sunnyside Turnoff Fire that broke out a week and a half ago on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation was declared 100 percent contained.

The firefighting force has dropped to 117 personnel doing rehabilitation and patrol work. Full control is expected by Aug. 15.
