SISTERS, OR -- Fire crews responded to a brush fire along Highway 126, between Redmond and Sisters, Tuesday afternoon. It was first spotted at milepost 101, east of Fryrear Road, just after 2:30 p.m.

 

Air and ground units responded quickly, getting a line around the 3/4-acre fire. The blaze forced the closure of one eastbound lane of 126 while crews attacked the flames. It was fully contained and the highway reopened just after 6 p.m.

 

In August, three wildfires burned about a dozen acres of brush and trees along Highway 126, near Tuesday's incident.
