From the expansive grasslands, to the rugged mountains, fire fighters in Central Oregon are busy today. Some of the fire fighters are being shifted away from the 3500 acre grassland fire north of Madras to a wilderness area, 35 miles northeast of Prineville.  It’s challenging work for fire crews battling a blaze up in a rugged wilderness area. Fire spokesperson Lisa Clark says two fires have charred at least 800 acres on Sutton Mountain in a wilderness study area.  "Very remote. There is private land on the outside and we are working with the private property owners adjacent to the wilderness study area to come up with suppression strategies and work thru that." Those two fires are challenging to fight because they are located in steep terrain. Some helicopters are being used to fight the flames.  Clark says they were most likely sparked by one of the roughly 800 lightning strikes that hit Central Oregon Monday night.
