PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Klamath County fire has been mapped at nearly two square miles and its fuel source is highly flammable.

The Bryant Fire in a logging operation on private lands outside Bonanza in Klamath County is burning on ponderosa pine, mixed conifer and dried brush.

John Flanigan of the Oregon Department of Forestry says the wood is so dry it could be lit with a match.

The Department of Forestry says gusty winds and rough terrain make it likely the fire would grow larger.
