Progress Made Against Oregon Wildfires

SOUTHERN OREGON — Several wildfires are still burning in southern Oregon, but fire crews have made progress in containing them.

The top priority is still the Douglas Complex, which has burned more than 44,000 acres. Those fires are now 32 percent contained, and the Oregon Army National Guard has sent about 140 soldiers to Douglas and Josephine counties to assist in firefighting efforts.

Meanwhile, the Whiskey Complex is still burning six miles east of Tiller. Those fires have consumed more than 10,600 acres and are 40 percent contained.
