Multiple fire agencies converged on what was described as a fast-moving brush fire north of La Pine Monday. While the fire was limited to an acre, it came as Central Oregon is reaching temperatures in the 90s this week.

The La Pine Rural Fire Protection District said it happened along Milepost 163 on Highway 97. That’s roughly 15 miles south of the High Desert Museum.

Twelve La Pine firefighters in two engines and a tender were assisted by Sunriver Fire, the Oregon Department of Forestry and the U.S. Forest Service.

The Oregon Department of Transportation reported delays in the southbound lanes of less than 20 minutes.

Firefighters had the the situation under control within an hour. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
