The Oregon Gulch Fire is part of the larger Beaver Complex fire, located near the Siskiyou Mountains along the Oregon-California border. The fire has burned over 36,000 acres since it was started by lightning in late July. 30 percent of the complex is contained as of Tuesday morning. A red flag warning has been issued for the area through Tuesday night as scattered thunderstorms — which could produce lightning and 30 to 40 mph gusts — could combine with very dry ground to ignite more fires.
