Warm Springs wildfire roars; Friday's team coverage

 


WARM SPRINGS, Ore. - The County Line 2 Fire had burned more than 36,000 acres on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation and was still growing rapidly Friday, as fire bosses struggled with a lack of planes and helicopters. The fire prompted wider evacuations of several subdivisions and Kah-Nee-Ta Resort while keeping U.S. Highway 26 closed;

A small sign of hope in the Friday night update: The wildfire is now 3 percent contained, with a long, long way to go.

"It's not making minimal acreage per day, it's making huge jumps," said Doug Epperson, public information officer with the Oregon Incident Management Team No. 1.
