Weather forecasters warned of dry, hot conditions starting Thursday in Oregon west of the Cascade extending into the weekend, elevating the risk of fire.
The hot, dry conditions will move up into the state from California and spread northward. For fires, the biggest threat is expected on Saturday in southwest Oregon where four blazes are still uncontained.
Here's what's burning:
The Deception/Staley complex west of Oakridge grew slightly over the past 24 hours, covering more than 2,300 acres. It is 55 percent contained.
The Lost Hubcap fire southwest of Monument has burned nearly 3,000 acres. It is 87 percent contained.
The 790 fire northeast of Medford has burned more than 2,300 acres and is 33 percent contained.
The South Fork Complex south of John Day in Grant County has scorched more than 66,000 acres but is now 100 percent contained.
