KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Firefighters have built a partial line around a fast-growing wildfire in southern Oregon that has destroyed homes and led to dozens of evacuations.

Fire spokeswoman Erica Hupp says crews are assessing the fire on Monday morning. Their last measurement estimated the blaze near Sprague River at about 4 1/2 square miles.

The wildfire started around 2 p.m. PDT Sunday in timber and brush and has destroyed an undetermined number of homes and structures.

Before sundown Sunday, Klamath County sheriff's deputies evacuated more than 100 people from homes along two roads in the area.
