Josephine County is also seeing their fair share of wildfires still burning.

The Big Windy Fire, located 10 miles west of Galice, has grown to at least 1,500 acres.

Bear Camp Road has been closed because of fire conditions in the area.

Residents are urged to prepare for potential evacuations.

Meanwhile, officials from the Oregon Department of Forestry say of the 24 fires in Josephine County, their biggest priority at this time is the Brimstone Fire, 5 miles west of Sunny Valley.

The fire consumed an estimated 200 acres.

They say their main focus today is to better establish the fire-line and extinguish hotspots around that line.
