Fire Crews Working on Sisters Blaze

Fire crews responded to a 1.9 acre blaze outside of Sisters at about 2:00 p.m. this (Saturday) afternoon.

 

The blaze was one mile north of Highway 20 between Road 11 and the Indian Ford Road.

 

Public Affairs Specialist Kassidy Kern with the Deschutes National Forest says there was growth potential, as winds in the area were 15-20 miles per hour.

 

Federal, state and local resources came out to the area.

 

Ten smoke jumpers were able to help get it into control.

 

Crews will be working on the fire all day and mopping up this evening.

 

They plan to monitor the area for the next couple of days, to make sure nothing starts up.
