▶️ Evacuations lifted after house fire threatened other homes near La Pine


Homes were evacuated in an area near La Pine due to a house fire that was spreading to nearby homes and the wilderness. The evacuations were lifted less than an hour later.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office said at 2:49 p.m. Tuesday that the fire was in the area of Boundary Road and Camino De Oro.

Level 3 evacuation notices — which mean “Go Now” — were issued to homes in the immediate area. Those evacuations were lifted by 3:45 p.m., but some roads will remain closed while fire crews continue working in the area. 

No further details, including the cause of the fire, were immediately available.
