Multiple fires started by lightning
Firefighters have chased down seven small fires around Black Butte, all sparked by lighting from thunderstorms that continue to roll across Sisters Country. The largest fire was ½-acre in size, according to Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch. All are fully lined.

A helicopter was deployed to make water drops in areas of heavy dead-and-down timber on Black Butte and to scout for more fire starts.

A 10-acre fire on the Metolius arm of Lake Billy Chinook has forced the evacuation of Monte Campground.

Sisters Country remains under Red Flag Warning through tomorrow, with more lighting expected.
