A forest fire began this afternoon in the Mt. Washington wilderness west of Sisters. Initially it was a 30-acre blaze but high winds caused the fire to grow rapidly and send a stream of smoke eastward over the region. We've had a quiet summer, fire-wise, and everyone was hoping that the season would wind down without incident. No homes or property are threatened as of now. Tomorrow may be cooler and less windy.
