Complex sparked by lightning burns 731 acres

By , Columbian staff reporter

The arrival of fall weather means the Cowlitz Complex Fire is winding down in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, and fire resources are continuing to scale back.

The complex is at 39 percent containment and has burned 731 acres, as of a Thursday morning update from the incident command team. There were 122 resources assigned to the fires.

Management teams said the fires have had little to no activity, due to the recent rain showers and cooler temperatures.

Crews are still monitoring the fires and will continue working in the area.

Officials warn people to continue to be vigilant about firefighters and equipment in the area.

The complex included 30 fires in the area sparked last month by lightning.

Most of the fires have been contained and are under monitoring.
