Juniper Creek Fire 8-22-23

All evacuation orders were lifted Tuesday on the Juniper Creek Fire burning near Lake Billy Chinook.

The Oregon Department of Forestry said the 106-acre fire, which started Sunday morning, is 75% contained. The fire is about 16 miles north of Sisters, and a couple of miles southwest of the Three Rivers subdivision which has hundreds of homes, mostly vacation properties.

Firefighters secured the control line by finding and extinguishing all heat within 200 feet of the fire’s edge and patrolling for spot fires, ODF said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. A human cause is suspected as there is no record of lightning in the area in recent days.
