Wildfire season is in full swing in Oregon. The Rowena fire, which for a few days was the top firefighting priority in the U.S., is now almost 70 percent contained. The most pressing fire in Oregon is currently the South Fork Complex Fire, which is burning near the town of Dayville. The fire has burned 62,476 acres and is 30 percent contained.

In addition, a wildfire in Saddle Mountain State Park yesterday resulted in the rescue of 19 hikers by the Coast Guard and the Oregon Department of Forestry.

We’ll get the latest developments on both of these situations.
