Posted: Updated:

The fire that sent many Shepherd-area residents from their homes on Friday is fully contained.

According to the Shepherd Fire Chief, Lisa Openshaw, crews are still near Pleasant Hollow Trail, and mopping up the charred remains. Chief Openshaw reports no structures were lost in the blaze, but part of a barn was damaged by the extreme heat. She said at least six homes were in immediate danger of the fire.

At last word, investigators said Friday's blaze scorched nearly 65 acres. Investigators said they believed a cause will be determined by Monday.
