Shevlin Park Brush Fire

There is a brush fire. About 10 acres in size and growing, burning just downstream from Aspen Hall in Shevlin Park.  The fire is burning in the canyon of Tumalo Creek in moderate fuels.  Oregon Department of Forestry, Deschutes National Forest personnel and the Bend Fire Department are currently on scene.  10 engines and a helicopter are on scene.  They are applying water to the fire and using dozers to build fire line.

We are asking people to stay away from the area.  Deschutes County Deputy Sheriffs are closing Shevlin Park Road at the 3 Pines subdivision so that crews can operate more effectively and safely.
