SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A week after the fire sparked up in Lane County, the Holiday Farm Fire is now estimated to be 166,573 acres.

Containment is at 6%. This number is the amount of the fire edge that is secured from burning further out.

The fire has a perimeter of about 200 miles, but favorable weather conditions have led to progress.

As of Monday, 745 people are on the fire.

The strategy right now involves using bull dozers and other heavy equipment to construct control lines along the perimeter. Where the ground is too steep or rocky, firefighters build hand lines. Structural crews are mopping up hot spots around homes. 

"This is still an active fire scene so protecting lives will always be number one whether it be the people in the community or the firefighters who are out working, we always care about lives and making sure safety," said Brian Richardson, the spokesperson for the Holiday Farm Fire.

He said firefighters have been working to mop up some hot spots along the Highway 126 corridor in order to protect structures.

Evacuation levels in some areas have been decreased.
