Warm Springs Fire Update


1500 crews are now fighting the High Cascades Complex on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. The fire complex, at last count was 76,000 acres. When the afternoon winds picked up yesterday, the fire really started moving. Veteran firefighter Chris Orr was stunned by its power and speed. "It was the 2nd fastest moving fire I've ever been on in my 19 year career. Yesterday when it got established, about 11 o’clock. By 1900 hundred [hours] it had gone 7 miles to the south and east."   Chris Orr spoke with our news partner, News Channel 21. the high cascades complex is now 15 percent contained and full containment is expected early next week.
