Smoke from Oregon's wildfires continues to plague residents and travelers.

The National Creek Complex of fires is now 10% contained as it burns it part of Crater Lake National Park. The Park remains open, although the north park entrance road remains closed to facilitate fire operations and provide for the safety of firefighters and park visitors. A segment of the Pacific Crest Trail is also closed from the park north boundary to the junction with Lightning Springs Trail. Oregon Highway 230 remains closed.

Oregon's largest wildfire, the Canyon Creek Complex south of John Day, is burning over 67,000 acres and is 17% contained. Firefighters are making progress, and the milder weather, and lesser winds, are helping their efforts.

A fire near the Warm Springs Reservation in Central Oregon is now 58% contained, and firefighers continue to battle strong winds and elevated fire watch conditions.
