Authorities Eyeing Hot Weather and Winds this Week

The fire burning near Mt. Hood has expanded to 4500, and it's 10% contained. Paul Norman, at the Northwest Coordination Center says they want to create a larger buffer with private lands before strong winds hit Wednesday and Thursday. The fire burning west of Sisters has also grown expanding past containment lines. They're very concerned about the winds expected with the extreme hot weather forecast later this week. The other major concern is the Shadow Lake Fire near Sisters. It has burned past containment lines and managers are working on a new plan to stop it from advancing. The winds forecast this week could also cause that fire to grow.
