Crews have now gotten a handle on a fast moving brushfire in Warm Springs. The brush fire cropped up near a subdivision around 2 p.m. and the winds quickly whipped it up to about 2000 acres, before crews reached containment. Fire officials say one abandoned building, possibly a trailer, was lost, but that is the only casualty in the fire at this point. KBND spoke with a dispatcher at the Warm Springs Fire Management Center: “It started at Upper Dry Creek subdivision; burned clear around Miller Heights subdivision. As far as I know, we never lost any homes.  Thankfully [the fire] got close to them, but they managed to keep the fire away from them.” They also evacuated a Forestry and Natural Resources Compound on Highway 3. The dispatcher says it was burning in sagebrush, juniper and mostly grass. Traffic in that area near Highway 26 and Highway 3 was affected for a while as crews aggressively attacked the blaze.
