BEND, OR -- Fire crews continue mopping up the two wildfires that broke out Friday. As of Wednesday morning, the Teepee Fire, southeast of Bend, is 75% contained at 2,027 acres. Investigators believe the blazed started with an abandoned campfire. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office lifted all evacuation orders for the area around the Teepee Fire, Tuesday night.

 

The Willow Fire, near Madras, is now 428 acres and 100% contained. Crews are monitoring the site and will continue to do so for several weeks. Officials say residents could see smoke from the interior of the Willow Fire but ask that you don't report it.
