"The fire is named the military fire.  It is under investigation, we don't know what started it.  It's burning in private timber and brushland along U.S. 97.  We figure it's about 22 miles south of Chemult and 44 miles north of Klamath Falls."

 

The fire burned ten acres.

 

South Central Oregon is under a high fire danger.  Local fire officials wants to remind the public to be carful when camping and how you dispose of your cigarettes.
