MANSFIELD — Fires burning in Douglas County were 70 to 80 percent contained today, with officials hoping to have them 100 percent contained in the next one to two days. The largest fire had burned 2,455 acres of mostly sagebrush and grass near Mansfield, although a small amount of crops were damaged, said incident commander Jeff Sevigney. One abandoned grain silo was burned. About 100 firefighters were on the scene this morning.
