We consider the problem of viscous fingering in the presence of quenched disorder, that is both weak and short-range correlated. The two-point correlation function of the harmonic measure is calculated perturbatively, and is used in order to calculate the correction and the box-counting fractal dimension. We show that the disorder increases the fractal dimension, and that its effect decreases logarithmically with the size of the fractal.
