Fire crews are making great progress on the Deadman Canyon Fire, and Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch spokesperson Lisa Clark says they are 20% contained. "And current acreage is 3869 acres. They’re going to work today with the same 150 people working on the fire. They’re going to continue to hold and improve the containment lines. Protect the scattered structures that are in the area and work on any hot spots." Clark says Central Oregon has earned the nickname as "lightning alley" this fire season, as we had about 800 strikes during Monday’s storm that passed through. She adds that two- thirds of the wildfires in Central Oregon each year are caused by lightning strikes.
