REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) – An unattended burn pile sparked a brush fire northwest of Redmond Thursday afternoon that burned about an acre before firefighters stopped its spread, an official said.

Redmond Fire & Rescue crews were called around 2 p.m. to the reported fire that spread from a debris pile at a property in the 3500 block of Northwest Way, Captain Sean Hagen said.

Crews were able to make a quick knockdown of the fire, Hagen said, keeping it from spreading to a nearby canyon and threatened structure.

A Bureau of Land Management engine crew from Prineville helped mop up and overhaul the blaze, the captain said.

  1. dang those wild burn piles escaping and running free. they are like dogs.

    it is never the dog it always the dog’s owner.

    I’m looking forward to the follow up story detailing the punitive action taken against the responsible individual—and I’m not holding my breath.

    there never seems to be any enforcement of laws and regs on the books rendering them meaningless.
