The fires broke out just before 1 p.m.   There are two fires involved out by the Bull Springs area,  west of the Tumalo Resevoir.   They are sending firefighters out to both sides.

 

Deschutes County officials say so far no structures are threatened at this point.

 

Officials are asking people to stay away from the area.

 

Lisa Clark with the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch says the two fires are within seven miles of each other and they are treating them as one fire.

 

Right now their main concern is campers and other people recreating in the area. 

 

Clark says many agencies are responding to the fires including Redmond and Prineville hot shot firefighters as well as  two helicopters.

 

We will have more information as it becomes available.
