The Bureau of Land Management is currently wrapping up the Stagecoach Fire, which started Monday south of La Pine. The fire did not grow Thursday and is now 70 percent contained, said BLM spokeswoman Lisa Clark. It was about 330 acres.

Firefighting forces were downgraded from 157 to 125 firefighters Thursday evening. Clark expects the fire to be 100 percent contained by 6 p.m. today.

“We battled some winds today, but things are looking really good,” Clark said.
