Today Governor Kitzhaber will get a closer look at the Dollar Lake Fire on Mt. Hood. He'll fly over the fire that's burned more than 4600. “In these kind of fire conditions, anything adjacent to a wildland fire is potentially threatened.”   The Shadow Lake Fire near Sisters is now 15% contained and at 6700 acres. Paul Norman with the Fire Command Center says a number of campgrounds are still closed. “They're trying to push it to the south towards a lava field that would be a natural barrier where it would not be able to get over the to Clear Lake Recreation Area." He says so far, crews have been able to keep the fire away from buildings there.
