The cause of the Elk Fire near Madras has now been traced to an area resident's burn barrel from which flames escaped Monday afternoon. A spokesman for the Oregon State Fire Marshal said last night Tuesday evening that the Elk Fire had been contained. Jerri Mills with the Northwest Interagency Center says the fire started on Monday around noon, and spread both north and south at the same time, threatening homes and engulfing a pump station. “We were that close to the east side of the mountain. They get, what we call down slope winds. And they kick up. And so they can go either way.” And, there are two others large fires crews are working in eastern Oregon; one is near the dalles and burning on 1500 acres near where the Lower Deschutes River dumps into the Columbia River. The other is about 1300 acres and is 9 miles southeast of Arlington.
