GLIDE, Ore. -- Fire crews are focusing on the western and southwestern portions of the Archie Creek Fire on Friday.

So far, it has grown to 115,857acres and is 0% contained.

Progress is being made with structure assessments, protection of structures, use of roads, power, infrastructure, containment of fire, and opportunities for future containment according to Kyle Reed with the Douglas County Protective association. 

The change in winds has worked in their favor but the smoke is keeping them from using aircraft to fight the fires from above.

"We can’t fly over this fire right now with the limited visibility," he said. "You know, the airplanes and helicopters they can’t see a quarter of a mile in front of them.”

Reed said resources are very limited right now with only 369 firefighters working on the Archie Creek Fire. He said they are still searching for outside resources.

For now, they're relying on the local fire departments and timber industries to help with structural and point protection.
