A string of large fires on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation has grown to 62,000 acres - they nearly doubled in size Monday. Nearby homes were evacuated and ODOT closed three major highways in the area. Highway 26 is still closed near Warm Springs with a detour in place. As of Monday night, the High Cascades Complex was 10% contained. At the very earliest, full containment is expected in about a week.

In other large fires we're following:

The Hancock Fire Complex near Clarno is now at 53,000 acres. The complex had moderate fire behavior Monday with a few flare-ups. Crews remain challenged by steep slopes, rugged terrain and dry grass that burns quickly. There are also several large fires near Mitchell, the largest. The Dead Dog fire was mapped at 13oo acres. Fire spokesperson Lisa Clark has an additional warning right now for avid hunters: “The main thing is we've entered into bow season. Soon we'll be entering into rifle season for hunting. We have had a lot of fires recently in Central Oregon. We definitely want to urge caution for people out there; if they're hiking through a recently burned area they should watch for stump holes or snags, and should watch for extra fire traffic out on our forest and range-land roads right now.” And -the fire near Black Butte Ranch ; about 8 miles away, is holding at 300 acres.
