Firefighters mop up blaze west of Sisters

A fire was reported before 1 a.m. this morning burning just off of Forest Service Road 11 (Indian Ford), west of Sisters.

The fire is approximately five acres and has a hose lay and line around it at this time. Currently fire crews are mopping up the fire with three engines, two fire crews and two water tenders. Forward progression of the fire was stopped early through line construction as well as conducting burnout operations between the fire and Forest Service Road 11.

Are officials noted that, early on, the fire had active fire behavior, including group torching due to downslope winds.

Mop up and patrol of the fire will continue throughout Sunday and into Monday. The public should avoid the area if possible due to slowdowns on Forest Service Road 11 east of Black Butte due to fire engines and crews working on the road.

Response to the fire included Sisters-Camp Sherman, Cloverdale and Black Butte Ranch Fire Districts as well as Forest Service firefighters.

The public should be aware of continued drying of fuels throughout Central Oregon and the current high fire danger and take precautions with campfires and driving and parking on dry grass.
