A fire near Crater Lake grew to more than 700 acres Tuesday and is 12 percent contained. But the national park is still open.
Visitors to Crater Lake National Park have been asked to get ready to evacuate in case the Bybee Creek Fire makes a big run. But at this point, most roads and visitor services remain open. You can still camp there, or even take a boat ride on Crater Lake.
Lucinda Nolan, public information officer with the South Central Oregon Fire Management Partnership, says weather will play a big role in the firefighters’ progress.
