A fire has been burning near fort rock since July 23.

The Lava Fire, as it is being called, is the largest wild fire in Oregon.

Fire fighters have been creating “black lines” around the blaze, using controlled burns to eliminate the fuel and box in the fire so it can burn out.

As of Friday, the fire was 70 percent contained. 

Lucinda Nolan of the Central Oregon Fire Management Partnership says that while it may affect traffic, it should not be too big of a disruption, "if you are traveling in that area, fire traffic is heavy in the morning and evening hours there is a lot of resources up there and you will probably see a lot of air traffic as well, but other than that i think people can still come down and enjoy the area and they will not be effected."

With the controlled burns, the fire now covers over twenty thousand acres.

Residents should expect to see smoke column in addition to the increased traffic over the next few days.
