Ore. wildfire traps 2 hunters

PORTLAND -- Authorities in Eastern Oregon say a wildfire that sprang up quickly has trapped two bow hunters, and a helicopter will be called in to rescue them.
Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer says the husband and wife called relatives Tuesday night saying they were going to hike out, but they couldn't.
Their car was on the south side of the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness Area. Two dozen more people were evacuated from camps.
Palmer told the Oregonian on Wednesday the roads are impassible and horses are blocked by downed trees, so he called for a helicopter.
He described the hunters as in their 40s from the Portland area. He says they were likely hunting deer or elk.
The cause of the Parish Cabin fire is under investigation.
