Growing wildfire threatens hundreds more homes in Oregon

By Courtney Sherwood PORTLAND Ore. (Reuters) - A fast-spreading wildfire threatened 740 dwellings in northern Oregon on Friday after destroying a home and five other buildings overnight in what officials said could be one of the state's worst blazes for years. About 600 households have already been evacuated from the path of the so-called Rowena Fire, which has almost doubled in size since Thursday and is burning to around 3,400 acres in the scenic Columbia River Gorge. In Oregon alone some 4,600 firefighters are battling a dozen blazes across more than 105,000 acres of forests and grasslands. "This is shaping up to be one of the more active fire seasons we think we will see in decades," Alisa Cour, a spokeswoman for crews fighting the Rowena Fire, said on Friday.
