Firefighters are gaining control of the Canyon Creek Complex. It’s still growing, but there’s little danger to homes as most of the blaze is moving into the wilderness. In John Day, Oregon, Ashley Stewart reports.
Officials say firefighters made “great progress” overnight. The blaze has grown slightly to more than 69-thousand acres. Now, it’s 23 percent contained – that’s up from 17 percent on Saturday. For now, most homes are safe as the wildfire moves away from town and into the county’s wilderness area.
