About 1200 fire crews are trying to make progress today on the huge complex of fires burning on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. This afternoon fire officials said the complex is still estimated at around 62,000 acres. Monday afternoon, winds picked up and the fire gained a lot of ground. Fire spokesman Tom Lavagnino says the good news is that no structures have burned; although flames came very close to some homes. "The fire started to make a run on us. We utilized some air tankers from Redmond, which was pretty effective, and then we had a DC 10 from Sacramento, California and dropping about 12,000 gallons of retardant. Normal tankers hold about 3000 gallons, so this was a little bit bigger than that. So you can imagine that made a pretty good effect on the fire's spread.”  He says aggressive firefighting efforts kept the homes safe and greatly reduced the impacts to the local community.
