Today crews are working on a fire that started yesterday afternoon and quickly grew to 3000 acres. It's burning near Maupin and forced the evacuation of campgrounds in the area. Fire Information spokesperson Lisa Clark has more details: "We did evacuate all campgrounds between Buckhollow and which is right near where the Deschutes River lower access road crosses Highway 216 north of Max canyon. There are several campgrounds in there and they will remain closed at this time. The river itself is not closed people can put in for rafting day use is allowed but we are not allowing overnight camping at this time." She says the Brown Road fire may be human caused - it started near a boat launch and there were no lightning strikes in that area. Meantime - they are expecting full containment sometime today on the Deadman Canyon Fire northeast of Madras.
