Despite hot, dry weather, firefighters are making progress on fires burning in the Cascade Range from Mount Hood to southern Oregon.
Gov. John Kitzhaber is scheduled for a flight Friday over the Dollar Lake fire that is burning within 4,600 acres on the north side of Mount Hood.
Crews have been focusing on the northwest corner of the fire, which is three miles from the Bull Run watershed that supplies 900,000 people in Portland with water. The fire is 25 percent contained.
South of there on the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs reservation, crews have the Badger Butte fire 25 percent contained as well.
