A fire burning in a wilderness area near Sisters in the Central Oregon Cascades is being allowed to take it’s course. The fire was started by lightning and is being monitored by a special national team. Jeree Mills, at the Northwest Coordination Center, says they'll make sure it doesn't get out of control and doesn't threaten private property. It's one way to lower the cost of fire fighting, when it's a naturally caused fire and doesn't run the risk of destroying private property.
