Garden Fire Affects Wilderness Area

The "Garden Fire" burning about 10 miles northeast of Fort Rock is estimated at 7000 acres. That fire was first reported last Friday, and is burning in sagebrush, juniper, grass and nearby lava flows. It’s also burning within a wilderness study area. Fire officials are trying to keep the Garden Fire contained within the wilderness study area and away from private lands where some structures may be threatened, as well as a nearby power line. Fire danger throughout south Central Oregon remains "extreme".
