Fire crews have been hopping in the wake of Wednesday’s big storm. Those strikes started about 200 fires. Lisa Clark with the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center says all this action started Wednesday afternoon. “Yeah, beginning Wednesday afternoon we started tracking the storm as it went through much of southern and then eastern Oregon and then into western Idaho. It actually put down more than 8000 lightning strikes as it went through the area.” New fire reports have been arriving from reconnaissance planes, fire lookouts, fire crews on the ground and members of the public.  Firefighters are working to contain new starts and many have been dispatched to multiple fires Thursday. Most of these fires have been quickly contained very small.  The largest new fire is the Hancock Fire burning more than 10,000 acres east of Clarno. The fire triggered the evacuation of approximately 55 young campers Wednesday of the Hancock Field Station, a 10-acre science camp run by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry located one mile east of Clarno. The students may be allowed to return to camp as early as tomorrow.
