Fire crews were very successful taming the wildfires in Central Oregon over the weekend. Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch center spokesperson Lisa Clark says they are all well in hand: “Firefighters have done a great job over the past week, with the new fires that have started here in Central Oregon. The Deadman Canyon Fire which was burning north of Madras is 100% contained. The Brown Road Fire burning north of Maupin, along the Lower Deschutes River is 90% contained this morning." Clark says the Sutton Mountain Fires are about 70% contained. The weather forecast is for some thunderstorms this afternoon, possibly, and with the red flag conditions, crews are propositioning themselves in case a lightning strike causes problems.
