REDMOND, OR -- Hot and dry weather led to several small fires, across the High Desert, over the weekend. A vehicle fire near Pelton Dam in Jefferson County spread to vegetation, Friday afternoon; it was held at a tenth of an acre. 

 

Another blaze was discovered in Crook County on Round Mountain, in the Ochocos. It was reported Friday afternoon at a third of an acre, burning in heavy fuels. Crews immediately attacked it from the ground and air, pulling water from Walton Lake. 
 
In Deschutes County, crews responded to a fast-moving grass fire along Highway 97 on the north end of Redmond, Friday night (pictured). It was held to one acre. 
 
And, wildfire crews are getting the upper hand on the Solitude Fire, near Spray. It's nearly fully contained at just over 700 acres.
