REDMOND, OR -- A car fire sparked a brush fire near Pronghorn Resort, Sunday afternoon. Redmond Fire and Rescue responded at about 3:40 p.m. with initial attack, following by Bureau of Land Management (BLM) crews, who completed extinguishing the blaze and conducting mop-up operations. 

 

Officials say it appears the car tried to cross brush and grass, from the North Unit Canal right of way, over to SE Sherman Road. It got stuck and caught fire. Flames eventually spread in a strip estimated at 200 yards x 20 yards in size.
