We have not yet received any new reports of fires due to the last night's thunderstorms but fire bosses with the Deschutes National Forest report that, as of Friday evening, the Pole Creek Fire is estimated to have burned about 7000 acres.

 

The smoke columns rose to over 28,000 feet and are visible throughout Central Oregon.

 

The fire breached lines on the northwest perimeter; but firefighters established a new containment line near Forest Road 1026.

 

Officials have closed a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail, between “Four in One Cone”  (Trail #3531) and Highway 242.  All other closures are still intact.

 

The weather is forecasted to be fairly warm and dry- with some winds; not good news for firefighters,

 

Heavy smoke is still expected in the immediate Sisters area and people are advised to stay indoors and limit activity.
