CENTRAL OREGON -- Firefighters continue to battle the Sugarloaf fire, burning near Dayville.

At over 5,000 acres, it's Central Oregon's largest wildfire, right now, and is still 20% contained. A small blaze near the Sugarloaf Fire, one mile south of Dayville, grew to 65 acres on Tuesday.
 
The Corner Creek Fire, near the Black Canyon Wilderness, 11 miles south of Dayville is now estimated at 2,500 acres with no containment. Several tankers and helicopters are working to protect cabins and outbuildings along Wind Creek.
 
Crews were able to quickly extinguish another lightning start Tuesday morning on the east end of the Maury Mountains, east of Prineville. It was held at only a quarter of an acre and officials believe it was a holdover from storms that tracked through the region earlier this week.
 
Fire officials say holdover fires can ignite up to two weeks after initial lightning strikes.
