Fire Prompts Road Closures

If you are planning a trip to the valley, it's very important to keep an eye on Tripcheck. Peter Murphy with ODOT says the High Cascades Complex Fire has caused some major road closures. "We have Highway 26 closed up through the Warm Springs Reservation. And we also have Highway 97 closed from the 197/97 junction to Shaniko. So it's a situation where the fires are building in intensity." Murphy says back fires are being lit to try to get some control on the erratic fire, and for the public's safety and to give firefighters and equipment access, they decided to close the roads. Murphy says Highway 26 may be ale to have some lanes reopened by 9 p.m. tonight; but the fire could cause that decision to change.
