In Warm Springs, many homeowners realize how close a wildfire came to their homes. The 1300 acre blaze was declared contained on Friday night. The wind-whipped "Upper Dry Creek Fire" burned 2 homes; one vacant, one occupied, but they did evacuate in time. And it couldn't been much worse; the fast moving fire burned within inches of several homes in Warm Springs. One home-owner along with her son and nephew fought off the flames with a garden hose. One resident said it was moving so fast it crested the hill in 20 minutes.  First reports indicated the fire was sparked by a Warm Springs couple burning debris in their backyard. Fire officials now say they have learned the cause is still under investigation.
