PORTLAND, Oregon — Oregon's largest wildfire is nearing complete containment, although continuing high temperatures remain a concern.

The 618-square-mile Buzzard Complex fire in eastern Oregon, the nation's largest wildfire, remained at 95 percent containment on Sunday.

Incident reports from the fire say containment lines continue hold as crews monitor increased fire activity.

Containment of the Ochoco complex jumped from 69 to nearly 80 percent on Sunday. The complex consists of four wildfires burning 10,000 acres east of Prinville. And the Bridge 99 complex north of Sisters is 74 percent contained.
