June 28, 2017  Smoke Expected in Central Oregon tomorrow.

Sisters - Fire crews are preparing to conduct burnout operations tomorrow to help control the Sheep Spring fire.  The fire is located approximately 20 miles north of Sisters in the Brush Creek Drainage, less than a mile northwest of the Sheep Springs Campground.  Burn out operations are expected to begin in the morning, if conditions are favorable.  Smoke is likely to impact the nearby communities  including Camp Sherman.  Smoke will likely travel south potentially impacting Sisters and even Bend later in the day, as shown in the model forecast image below.   For information on how to protect oneself from smoke, please see the links on this website.
