Four major wildfires were agaom terrorizing the Warm Springs Indian Reservation Tuesday afternoon, and hundreds of families had to evacuate their homes.  Those fires are now estimated at 76,000 acres. Last night fire bosses held a community meeting to explain their strategies in fighting the complex of fires. About 1500 fire crews are now fighting those fires called the High Cascades Complex.

 

Here’s the largest numbers for the Hancock Complex burning near Clarno. Last night, managers on the Hancock Complex Group of blazes burning near Clarno in North-Central Oregon said the blazes had grown to 59,000 acres. It’s now 80% contained, with full containment expected tomorrow. Nearly 350 firefighters were still on the fire Tuesday. Firefighters successfully held most fire lines in the cooler, windier conditions yesterday. Daytime temperatures are expected to be a little cooler for the next several days before returning to normal or above normal over Labor Day weekend. And firefighters continue to watch for any new lightning holdover fires from the past week’s storms.
