BEND, Ore. (AP) — The Two Bulls wildfire northwest of Bend has been contained.

The Oregon Department of Forestry says about 100 people remained on the lines Saturday, along with two helicopters, nine engines, two bulldozers and two water tenders.

A transition team will recover equipment and extinguish any remaining hot spots. No evacuation levels remain in effect, but Forest Service Roads 4601, 4602, 4603, and 4606 remain closed.

The Phil’s Trail Mountain bike area is open.

It has so far cost $5.7 million to fight the nearly 7,000-acre fire.
