PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Firefighters have strengthened containment lines around a wildfire burning in southwest Oregon near Glendale.

Kyle Reed of the Douglas Forest Protective Association said Thursday morning that crews were helped during the evening by higher humidity readings due to fog.

The 123-acre Peavine Creek fire started Tuesday afternoon and is burning on steep, rugged terrain. No homes are threatened and the cause of the blaze has not been determined.

Reed says firefighters will spend Thursday mopping up hot spots. They will start from the outside of the fire and work their way in.
