People in and near Frenchglen had to leave their homes and spend the night in burns after a fast moving wildfire doubled in size in just one day.  The "Miller Homestead Fire" now sits at 110,000 acres, twice the size from Wednesday’s 55,000 acres.  Fire crews are battling winds, low humidity, and 100 degree heat. People in the hamlet of Frenchglen were evacuated along with people near Harney Lake.  They were told to go to the Days Inn in Burns to get help with food and lodging from the Red Cross.  Containment has been reduced from 30% on Wednesday to 10% today.   Meanwhile, more than 300 firefighters continue to  battle the 455,000-acre (more than 700-square-mile) long draw fire, 10 miles west of Basque on the BLM’s Vale District.
