Buzzard Complex Fire

Central Ore. -- The largest wildfire burning in Oregon right now has scorched more than 395,000 acres.

The Buzzard Complex is burning about 45 miles northeast of Burns, in Central Oregon.

According to the Bureau of Land Management the perimeter was about 75 percent contained by 8 a.m. Monday morning.

It was started by lightning last Monday and crews fighting the fire say they're concerned about more dry thunderstorms hitting the area within the next 24 hours.
