A spokesperson for the "Waterfalls 2 Fire" west of Warm Springs hopes that smoke from the large fire doesn't disrupt the popular airshow set for Madras this weekend.
 
Public Information Officer Lauren Maloney says smoke has been drifting into Madras, so it could affect the air show.  She says a spokesperson from the forest service will talk to the airshow crowd about the nearby fire.  The forest service also has some aircraft on display during the show.
 
As for other impacts - fire bosses say the fire is creeping towards some important areas.  Maloney says there is a very outside chance that a subdivision with 75 homes could be threatened.  The subdivision is about 10 miles from Warm Springs.
 
She spoke with 1110 KBND news Thursday morning.
 
"the only structures currently out ahead that could be threatened- peters pastures historic sites- the shitake lookout-bpa and pge powerlines- and a subdivision out to the northeast- that would be 3 days out of some very active fire behavior."
 
Again, Maloney says that's a very remote possibility. The fire is currently around 84 hundred acres and 7 percent contained.  Traffic on highway 26 can be affected by the smoke and fire fighting rigs so drivers are asked to use extra caution in that area near Warm Springs.
 
The Airshow is scheduled for Friday and Saturday in Madras.  Kids under 12 are free, Veterans are free, and everyone is 8 dollars a person.
