Tumalo Ag Burn Escapes Containment Line

TUMALO, OR -- Bend Fire and Rescue responded to an agricultural burn north of Tumalo that escaped its containment line, Sunday afternoon. Fire investigators say the homeowner and a friend were working a controlled ditch-bank burn when the wind shifted, moving the blaze into trees, a vehicle and a five-acre field.

 

Officials want this fire to serve as a reminder of how important it is to have a burn permit on-hand. They want to make sure locals know weather conditions before starting an outdoor burn.
