GRANTS PASS, Oregon — A huge brushfire burning near Grants Pass in southern Oregon has forced more than 1,000 people to evacuate their homes.

By Sunday, the Garner Complex fire grew to more than 50 square miles and was only about 30 percent contained.

The fire grew by more than 10 percent overnight and is being fought by some 2,600 firefighters.

No structures have been damaged, but about 1,000 people are under mandatory evacuation notices.
