La Pine Sunriver Fire July 22, 2022

A fire is burning near Highway 97 between La Pine and Sunriver and appears to be moving east toward the highway. Smoke can be seen as far away as Redmond.

It’s happening in the area of Highway 97 and Vandevert Road. The size of the fire is not immediately known.

Multiple fire engines are on scene. At least one helicopter is making aerial drops on the fire as it east toward Highway 97. We’re being told the reason there is so much support being throw at this is because there are no other major fires they have to fight right now.

Neighbors say firefighters appear to be set up to protect property in the area. They are being told that no evacuations are currently planned.

Central Oregon Daily News has a crew on the scene and we’re working to get more information.
