Fire crews worked through the night to contain a growing wildfire north of Tiller that was first reported on Tuesday. According to the Douglas Forest Protective Association, the Marshall's Place Fire is estimated at 200 acres in size. DFPA said that firefighters took advantage of more favorable conditions overnight to build lines around the fire, which is located about four miles north of Tiller. During the afternoon, strong winds gusts fanned the flames, producing a number of spot fires through logging slash and second-growth timber in the area. But crews on the scene reported that fire activity decreased after sunset amid rising humidity and reduced winds, allowing hand crews and bulldozers to complete containment lines around the entire perimeter.
