    TERWILLIGER, Ore. - Flames continue to grow near the Terwilliger Hot Springs.

    According to the Forest Service, the fire is expected to grow due to dry fuel loads. The blaze has already burned nearly 110 acres.

    Fire crews are working through the night, both on and off the ground, to suppress the blaze.

    It is unknown at the time whether the fire affected the hot springs, but we do know that parts of the Forest Service Road 10, the main route to the hot springs, is closed due to the flames.

    Now, visitors will have to wait indefinitely to visit the springs.

    Highway 126 is still open, and the Forest Service wants to remind visitors that all campfires are banned in the Willamette National Forest outside of designated campgrounds.
