Officials at the Northwest Coordination Center said the County Line 2 Fire grew overnight, and has now burned 46,000 acres around Warm Springs.

As of Saturday morning, only three percent of the fire was contained.

A total of 4 structures have been burned. No injuries reported. 350 fire personnel are working on this fire.

Crews noted that Friday’s strong winds led to the growth, though many structures were able to be protected.

The Kah-Nee-Ta Resort, evacuated Friday, remains under that order. As of Saturday, 1,000 homes and businesses were under either Level 2 or Level 3 evacuation.
