Wildfire Threatens Homes South of Sunriver

SUNRIVER, OR -- Crews responded to a wildfire south of Sunriver, Friday. It was first spotted around 11 a-m at about 3 acres, burning on both sides of the railroad tracks. Five engines, two 20-person hand crews, air support and the Redmond Hotshots all converged on the area. 

By 3 p.m., a Type 3 Incident Management Team was assigned and the fire was 100% lined by dozer on the west side of the fire, which was estimated to have grown to 15 acres. The dozer was moving toward the east side. The west side was priority, because of nearby homes and other structures. 

No formal evacuations were ordered and no structures were lost.
