▶️ 2-acre fire closes Highway 126 near Redmond Airport


A brush fire closed Highway 126 a few miles east of Redmond Municipal Airport Monday.

Firefighters were quick to respond to the fire around noon near Milepost 6 on the highway that connects Redmond, Powell Butte and Prineville.

The two-acre fire was burning on private land and is fully lined.

But even after that, traffic was affected for a couple of hours as a flagger alternated traffic in each direction.
