Fire crews near Chiloquin are on the scene of a wildfire, burning on private and national forest land.

Officials say the fire has even destroyed two historic buildings at the Bray Mill Fish Hatchery.

The blaze, which is being called the "Braymill Fire," has burned more than 17 acres, as of Thursday morning.

It looks like it started from an unmonitored burn barrel. Dry fuels and recent warm temperatures are increasing fire danger in the area.

No word just yet on when crews are hoping to have full containment.
