PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A destructive wildfire in southern Oregon is now 15 percent contained.

The fire, which destroyed six homes and 14 other buildings on Sunday, did not damage any more structures on Monday.

Fire spokeswoman Erica Hupp says accurate mapping early Monday evening found the Moccasin Hill fire covers about 4 square miles.

Hupp says the attack plan for Tuesday is to keep working on containment lines and do some mopping up in areas that have already burned.
