With a number of wildfires burning in locations all over southern Oregon, fire warnings have been stepped up further. Steve Best has the details…

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for high fire potential in fire zones covering Multnomah County, Clackamas County, Marion County, Linn and Lane Counties. The warning is in effect until Thursday night.

Aside from the local Little Butte fire, there are blazes of varying sizes and levels of containment in places as far apart as Deschutes County, Crater Lake, Hood River, and Sisters.

The National Weather Service is warning all residents to use extreme caution at this time, as a simple spark could cause a major wildfire.
