BEND, OR -- Fire managers plan to light a prescribed burn south of Bend, Tuesday, on the northeast side of China Hat Road. If conditions are favorable, they'll burn 150 acres, starting at 11 a.m. 

 

Because of the location of the operation, Deschutes National Forest officials say highway drivers could see smoke and potentially experience slowing of traffic; although, no road closures are planned.
 
As always, residents in the area who are susceptible to smoke should avoid outdoor physical exertion and remain indoors. The burn is designed to reintroduce fire into the ponderosa pine ecosystem and reduce hazardous fuels.
