Some Level 3 “Go Now” evacuations have been ordered due to an 10-acre grassland fire southwest of Redmond. An Oregon Department of Forestry official says forward progress has been stopped.

The fire started just before 3:00 p.m.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office issued the evacuations for people living in the area north of SW Obsidian Ave and south of Highway 126; West of SW Helmholtz and east of SW 58th St. 

A Level 1 “Get Ready” evacuation is being given to the area west of SW Helmholtz, south of SW Obsidian Ave., east of SW 55th Place following the Central Oregon Irrigation ditch south to SW Helmholtz to SW Wickiup Ave.

At least one barn and a chicken coop appear to be a total loss.

Fire personnel from Redmond, Bend, Cloverdale, Sisters, Crooked River, Sunriver and Alfalfa have been called to the scene.

The cause of the fire was not immediately known. 

Central Oregon Daily News has a crew at the scene. Check back for updates.
