Forest officials have released finding on the cause of the Pole Creek Fire.


Jean Nelson-Dean with the Deschutes National Forest says after a lot of investigation; lightning is the most probably cause for the fire.  "It really was a challenging situation, because the fire burned very intensely at the point of origin. They had limited physical evidence to go from. But what they did have was eyewitness accounts of a storm cell in the area, they did have some photographs and video of a storm that was in that area the day before."


Nelson-Dean says they did a lot of interviews and discounted that it was human caused.


She says there were no injuries or accidents while crews fought the blaze, and there is not cost estimate at this time.


Forest officials are holding an Open House on November 13th at the Sisters -Camp Sherman Fire District office to discuss the next steps in forest rehabilitation.
