The Pioneer Peak Fire fire is estimated at two-tenths of an acre and is now 70% contained, thanks to the hard work of two firefighters who hiked into the fire with tools and a chainsaw and dug a containment line around the upper portion of the fire to keep it from spreading. The bottom part of the fire burned into a rock drainage and is no longer spreading. Firefighters will return to the area tomorrow to continue mopping up areas they could not reach today.
