PLAINS -

The Thompson River complex fire grows to more than 1,300 acres.

There are three fires now. The Koo Koo Sint fire is close to Highway 200 and is 25 percent contained. The Spruce fire up the West Fork Road and the Marmot fire are both zero percent contained.

More than 300 people fight these lightning caused fires.

Several nearby homes and a high voltage BPA power line could get burned, especially if the winds keep blowing.

One mile southwest of the Bitterroot Flat campground, the West Alder fire touches 61 acres, but isn't threatening any homes or buildings.
