Crews are successful in corralling the wildfires in Central Oregon.  Valerie Reed with the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch says while several small fires have been easily contained to 20 or 30 acres; the Buck Creek Fire has grown slightly:  "We have the Buck Creek Fire, which is out by Hampton Butte. And with better mapping, it's at 5,500 acres and it's about 60% contained."  Reed says the Baker Canyon Fire is now 95% contained at just over 8300 acres.  She says the upcoming forecast is for several hot and dry days; and so crews are on guard for flare ups or winds spreading embers.  Fire bosses are issuing a warning to everyone to be extra - careful with cigarettes or campfires while the weather is very hot and dry
