Local News


You’ve probably noticed the smoke this morning; a wildfire is burning south of town. Fire officials say as of 9 p.m last night, about 60 acres had burned in a roughly 70-acre, thick pocket of Ponderosa Pine trees 2 1/2 miles northwest of Lava Butte. A stand of trees completely surrounded by lava fields. The fire, labeled Incident 440, was being fueled by a deep bed of pine needles, so it's likely to put up smoke for a couple of days, and will be monitored until it burns itself out. At the closest, the fire is about 2 1/2 to 3 miles south of Deschutes Riverwoods. The cause was not known, but fire official Lisa Clark says the area apparently is accessible by an ATV trail and is near a power line.
