Evacuees returning home as firefighters gain ground on Central Oregon wildfires

People evacuated from dozens of home in central Oregon as a wildfire flared nearby are being allowed to return home.

Sgt. Mike Biondi of the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says residents of the 40 homes in the Crescent Creek subdivision near La Pine that were evacuated in the early afternoon Saturday began returning home about 8 p.m.

Biondi says at least 20 of the evacuated people showed up at a Red Cross shelter, which was shutting down as the threat eased.

Winds gusting to 40 mph wreaked havoc on parts of Central Oregon, toppling trees that blocked roads and downing power lines that sparked at least two small wildfires.

The all clear came after crews were able to make progress containing the fires as winds died down.

Lisa Clark of the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center says a larger fire was about 80 percent contained.
