Investigators are still working to find out what caused the McIver Fire, which broke out in Clackamas County on the night of September 9. The fire is now contained but burned roughly 30 acres of Milo McIver State Park. “Firefighters continue to mop up the fire, which involves extinguishing or removing burning material and removing any hazardous trees or snags,” the Oregon Department of Forestry said Thursday. Fire investigators say they are still working to find the cause and origin of the fire. They say that the timeline can vary based on several factors, like the complexity of a fire, witness interviews, or analysis. They expect to have the investigation wrapped up by mid-November.
