The Sourgrass Complex fire continues to burn in Calaveras County but fire crews now have a dozer containment line around the blazes.

Three fires have consumed nearly six hundred acres along Highway 4 near Dorrington and along Winton Road in West Point as of 5 o´clock last night.

The fires are on Sierra Pacific Industries land, when burning logging slash piles got out of control Monday in the high winds.

Nearly 525 firefighters are still working the fire.
