Madras Fire Quickly Burns About 100 Acres


Proof that conditions are tinder dry right now; a wildfire quickly grew to 100 acres in Madras this afternoon. It's called Incident 426 right now.  Lisa Clark with the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch says they are asking for help from all over Central Oregon: "We're definitely trying to route some more resources that way, pulling in some of our folks from the Dayville area and other parts around Central Oregon.  So we'll definitely some assistance out there. Jefferson County has the lead at this time and they'll also re requesting assistance as needed." Clark says the fast moving fire is on private land, threatening some structures and is nearing BLM land. She says they do not know the cause at this point, as lightning does not seem to be a factor.
