Firefighters are stretched thin and have been dealing with intermittent heat waves, which make firefighting efforts more difficult. Gov. Kate Brown has enacted the conflagration act for several fires, allowing additional resources to be assigned to help get them contained.

Outside our area, the massive Bootleg Fire is now fully contained. It grew to more than 400,000 acres in Klamath County.

JACK FIRE & ROUGH PATCH COMPLEX

The Jack Fire has been burning near Glide since July 29. Officials now say the fire was human caused.

The Rough Patch Complex is burning nearby. Its cause is also under investigation.

MIDDLE FORK COMPLEX & KNOLL FIRE

The Middle Fork Complex includes fires burning in the areas of Fall Creek, Oakridge and Westfir. It started on July 29.

Oakridge was on high alert due to the Kwis Fire, which is part of the complex.

Meanwhile, near McKenzie Bridge, firefighters are working to contain the Knoll Fire. It sparked up on Aug. 5, and officials have determined it was caused by lightning. Last September, the Holiday Farm Fire destroyed several communities not far from the Knoll Fire area.

DEVIL'S KNOB COMPLEX & SKYLINE RIDGE COMPLEX

The Devil's Knob Complex is burning east of Canyonville near the Skyline Ridge Complex. Both sparked up after lightning strikes hit the area in early August.

In late August, fire officials announced the Skyline Ridge complex is fully contained.

In 2019, the Milepost 97 Fire burned south of Canyonville along Interstate 5.
