A fire near Madras last night affected traffic in the area. Fire officials say the fire tore through an outbuilding at a seed company along Highway 97 south of Madras Monday night, sending up tall flames as the firefighting effort forced motorists to detour onto nearby streets. The fire was reported around 9:30 p.m. in an outbuilding at the Wilbur-Ellis Co. Seed Division, at 3390 SW Highway 97, across from the Central Oregon Livestock Auction yard, officials said. Warm Springs reportedly was called in on mutual aid, and Culver firefighters were also on scene.  A Jefferson County Rural Fire District official said the fire was knocked down within about an hour. The outbuilding was destroyed, and fire crews were making sure the fire was out and looking for any hot spots. The facility was closed at the time and no injuries were reported.
