The fire burning on the Warm Springs Indian reservation is the largest in the northwest right now – Fire officials say it has grown and burned down one structure- it is now estimated at 25,000 acres.

A big concern for this afternoon are winds that could cause the fire to run -  about 120 people who live in subdivisions in that area have been evacuated from their homes – An evacuation center has been set up.
One old un-inhabited homestead in the Charlie canyon  area burned down. Fire bosses are asking any people or drivers there to watch for equipment and fire crews. 
Three air tankers and helicopters are also attacking the flames.
