Firefighters battled a brush fire about the size of several football fields (about 40 acres) near Crooked River Ranch Wednesday afternoon. The Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch deployed units from Redmond, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Department of Forestry and several other agencies to fight the blaze. The fire prompted the closing of roads in the area of Northwest 43rd and Lower Bridge Way while crews worked and a BLM "helitack" helicopter dumped water on the fire. There were no evacuations and no homes or structures were destroyed or damaged. Officials called the fire out after about four hours.
