A large prescribed burn near Bend went as planned. It was just 7 miles west of town on Skyliner's Road.  Katie Lighthall with Project Wildfire says they ignited the 100 acre area around 11 a.m. Thursday and winds cooperated.   She watched from on top of Pilot Butte and says if the planned burn didn't go well - they had a back-up plan. "In terms of back-up plans; the 107 acre square is completely surrounded by equipment and fire crews. So we really anticipate that with the weather and the light amount of debris that is on the ground, it should be a low intensity fire, and it should do everything we expect it to do.  As far as back up plans we have all kinds of resources out there to handle it." Crews will be in the area throughout the weekend to handle mop on the fire. The burn is being done to reduce hazardous fuels and improve the long-term health of the fire-dependent habitat in the area.
