BEND, OR -- A lightning holdover brush fire ignited Tuesday in a neighborhood North of Deschutes Junction.
The Bend Fire Department was called in shortly after 5 p.m. to a home on Morrill Road, where a neighbor was already on scene to help keep the fire from spreading.
BLM and Alfalfa Crews also responded and quickly stopped the flames. The small blaze was kept well away from any structures and no property was damaged.
Officials say a tree that was struck by lightning during Sunday's storm was the cause of the fire.
