A brush fire broke out in a vacant lot near northeast Fourth Street and Addison Road around 3 pm Thursday. The damage was confined to a pine tree, brush; bark mulch and the remains of what was described as a homeless camp area. The fire was contained after burning about a tenth of an acre. The cause f the fire is still undetermined, but is still under investigation. Bend Fire wants to remind everyone that during the early spring months, the downed brush and grass vegetation is dead and drying out quickly. These factors, coupled with warmer temperatures and gusty winds allow a fire to be carried through these fuels quickly.
