CENTRAL OREGON -- This week has been busy for local state and federal fire fighting agencies with high heat, gusty winds and lightning. Fire Information Officer Kassidy Kerns says there were a few thunderstorms and there were about 100 strikes that hit the ground. She says crews have been attacking ten new fires, keeping most under one-quarter of an acre. Kerns says the Day Basin Fire, seven miles southwest of Dayville, had an early attack by retardant aircraft and was lined at 41 acres. She says Prineville Hot Shots are working to secure the line. Kerns says another fire, 12 miles northwest of Millican called Incident 159, has grown to 270 acres. Kerns says the Brothers-Hampton Rural Fire Protection Association is being helped on that fire by Prineville BLM engines and crews.
