GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) -- One of the driest Junes on record, combined with strong wind, helped a wildfire in central Oregon grow to 16,000 acres in two days, officials said.
The fire started near a campground about 12 miles west of LaPine, creating a smoke plume that could be seen in a satellite photo extending over Montana. The cause was under investigation.
The fire was 30 percent contained Monday night. More than 620 firefighters and 150 support personnel battled the blaze, said Deschutes National Forest spokeswoman Carol Connolly.
East of Oroville, Wash., a fast-moving wildfire raced through 800 to 900 acres of grass and timber near the Canadian border, burning a house and a motor home and threatening 12 other structures, a state spokesman said.
No injuries were reported and the cause of the blaze was under investigation, Department of Natural Resources spokesman Brett Walker said.
The fire was 75 percent contained by firebreaks by late Monday night after aircraft dropped retardant on it.
In Southern California, a wildfire started by a truck fire charred 1,100 acres in the hills south of historic Fort Tejon State Park before firefighters got a handle on it.
The fire, about 40 miles southeast of Bakersfield, was 80 percent contained Monday evening, said Kern County Fire Department fire prevention specialist Cheryl Goetz. It was expected to be fully contained by Tuesday, she said.
Elsewhere, a 39,000-acre fire near Tucson, Ariz., was 65 percent contained with progress continuing, fire managers said. The fire earlier burned more than 300 buildings, mostly homes, in the Summerhaven area, a vacation hamlet atop Mount Lemmon.
A fire in southwestern Utah, about 10 miles west of St. George and five miles from the Shivwits Indian Reservation, had spread across some 22,000 acres by late Monday, burning primarily in pinon pine and juniper trees and brush on federal, state and private land.
A voluntary evacuation advisory for the reservation was withdrawn Monday, said Bureau of Land Management fire information officer Jodi Hamel.
