LA PINE, OR -- A debris burn in La Pine got out of control, Thursday afternoon, scorching about half an acre before firefighters contained it. The blaze destroyed a pickup and a utility trailer, as well as grass and trees at the property on Contorta Place. 


Investigators say the owner turned his back on the debris burn for just a few moments allowing it to escape. He did not have a permit, nor did he have water at the site. Fire officials say, despite our wet spring, just one day of sunny weather and a little wind dramatically increases the potential for fire.
