Fire bosses say we are starting to see a shift in our fire season. And two fires in Central Oregon Tuesday serve as a reminder of that change in conditions. Luckily two fast-moving brushfires near Madras sprang up fast, but were out quickly, too. “Yeah right, that's the nice thing about range fires is that they are very responsive to cooler temperatures in the evening, and so that helped firefighters get a handle on those two fires.” Lisa Clark with the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch in Prineville says they are starting to see the shift in fire season right now, as things heat up and dry out: “You know, just a reminder to people that we are experiencing this change with warmer temperatures and the vegetation drying out. And so just ask people to be really careful. The fire near Sisters was caused by fireworks.” Many local firefighters have been battling the big fires in Arizona and Alaska recently; but are due back home soon.
