Firefighters were able to make ample progress on the more than 200 fires reported since the lightning storm passed through Central Oregon Wednesday. The largest fire is still the Hancock Fire Complex burning near Clarno. The fire has grown to over 17,000 acres, at last report. It's burning on both sides of Highway 218 and on both sides of the John Day River. Firefighters continue to work on several fires in the Ochoco National Forest east of Prineville. Incident 606 in the Hamilton Creek area is 70% contained. Two other small fires near Johnson Creek, also east of Prineville, have containment lines completed and crews are holding them at bay.  The fires in the Warm Springs Complex are now renamed the High Cascades Complex. They have a combined burn acreage of about 6,000 acres and crews are continuing to battle that fire.
