A prescribed burn off of Skyliner's Road near Bend may attract a lot of attention. The burn will be about 100 acres and could send a lot of smoke into the area. Katie Lighthall with "Project Wildfire" says the homeowners in that area know how dangerous their location is,  and they've been very aggressive in clearing away fire fuel near their homes and neighborhoods. "They’ve been very supportive of the pres. burn effort and are really excited to see this done because it's going to provide a buffer for their community. And make them even more safe with the work they've done already."  The prescribed burn will be located about 7 miles west of Bend on Skyliners Road and will happen next week; weather permitting. Another large burn is planned on 700 acres south of Bend near Horse Butte.
