DUFUR, OR -- A grass fire southeast of Dufur quickly grew to more than 15,000 acres, Thursday night. The Long Hollow Fire was first spotted at about 4:30 p.m. BLM and Forest Service firefighters spent the evening fighting the fire alongside Wasco County and local rangeland fire crews. 

 

The fire has reportedly burned down to the Deschutes River, prompting Level 3 evacuation orders, Thursday afternoon, from Sherars Falls to Mack's Canyon. 

 

A Type-3 Incident Management Team takes command Friday. The fire's cause is under investigation.
