Fire bosses warn that more lightning storms are on the horizon, and may spark some local fires.  More storms are expected starting Thursday and should continue through the weekend.  The last storm brought about 1000 lightning strikes in Central Oregon.  Kristen Bowles with the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center says are grasses are still pretty green so putting out fires is relatively easy:  "Most of those are single lightning strike trees, small brush fires.  But most were small single strike snag trees that were burning."  Most of the recent lightning activity was center around sisters and throughout the Ochoco National Forest.
