Firefighters continue to work on several wildfires burning in Central Oregon and are watching for any lightning holdover fires from the past week’s storms. Another storm passed through yesterday, putting down 740 lightning strikes in Central Oregon. Additional concerns include a potential increase in wind that could challenge firefighters throughout the area. One fire, the Shadow Fire, burning eight miles from Black Butte Ranch prompted emergency officials to go door to door at the Ranch just in case they had to order evacuations. Lisa Clark is with the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center: “You know, we have a long history of fires in the Sisters area. There is a tendency for them to move from the west to the east. SO it really was precautionary. We knew a lot of people were seeing that smoke on the horizon, and so just giving them some information about what was going on as well as just information on the potential path the fire could take if they did not get it knocked down. But as of last night, things were looking out there.”  It’s currently 350 acres and forward progress to the east has stopped. The largest fire burning on the Warm Springs Reservation is the Razorback Fire estimated at more than 20,000 acres and continues to burn on both sides of the Deschutes River. The Lower Deschutes River is not closed to rafting at this time. And the large rangeland Hancock Complex near Clarno is now 45,000 acres.
