Transients Start Brush Fire East of Bend


Bend Fire Officials say transients cooking outside are to blame for a fast moving brush fire that threatened the Christian Life Center Church outside of Bend Thursday afternoon.  The fire burned 2.6 acres and forced crews to shut-down Highway 20 east of Bend near 27th Street. One witness, Youth Pastor David Hoole took some pictures of the flames using his cell phone: "Take a look and see how big it was; it was probably about 20 feet high the flames when it would catch something that would flame pretty good; pretty good sized blaze." The transients were cited for reckless burning. Fire bosses say fire danger is very extreme right now because of dry conditions, high temperatures and lots of fire fuel.
