At latest word the huge fire complex burning near Warm Springs is at around 90,000 acres, and 25% contained. Dozens of homeowners in the area have been on either mandatory evacuation status or evacuation standby, and drivers have been impacted with frequent road closures and detours in that area.

As for the rest of Central Oregon, the smoke from those fires has affected many others. Fire spokesperson Carol Connelly says the smoke may be around for the next few days.  "Those fires have, because of the range of the fires and the grass and the junipers, you know a classic range fire, it is putting up quite a bit of smoke. And because of the winds, a lot of that smoke is settling into Central Oregon." Full containment on the High Cascades Complex is estimated for Monday.
