A wildfire burning in a remote area of Silver Falls State Park had grown to 12 acres Saturday morning, officials said.

The park is open today, but officials warned visitors that there would be abundant firefighter equipment and aircraft in the park east of Salem. 

“Any visitors who plan to visit the park this weekend are advised to wait until more information is available about the status of this small fire,” the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department said in a statement. 

The Silver Creek Fire has led to the closure of several backcountry trails and the evacuation of a 142 people YMCA summer camp on Friday.
