Forestry officials are reporting progress being made on the wildfires burning in Oregon, California and Nevada.

Among them- the Barry Point Fire near Lakeview was 30 percent contained at this morning. It has burned 79,000 acres across Oregon and California, and 85-hundred acres in the ODF’s Klamath-Lake District.
The 39-hundred acre Fort Complex Fires is at 23 percent containment.

Officials report “good progress” on the Lick Fire within the complex. It is now 80 percent contained. Crews are now shifting to the Hello Fire that is at 15 percent containment. They are working on securing the final half mile of fire line around the perimeter. Meanwhile, the Goff Fire is burning away from residences along the Highway 96 corridor. Because of the topography, this fire is expected to grow. The fire is 5 percent contained.  

Two wildfires in the Umpqua National Forest are prompting the continued closure of a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail and other forest service trails and roads.
