No new growth overnight on the fire in southern Deschutes County.

A fire information officer with the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center says the the Old Wood Fire was staffed Saturday with a crew, dozer, and three engines, and a water tender.

The fire near Highway 97 between La Pine and Sunriver was fully lined Friday night after a huge response which included aerial drops.

The Old Wood Fire happened in the area of Highway 97, Vandevert Road and Huntington Road. 

Central Oregon Fire tweeted that the fire was at 26.4 acres and was fully lined with crews working to finish laying hose around it. They were expected to remain on scene overnight.

Aircraft assisting in the effort included air tankers and a helicopter that was making water drops. 

We’re being told the reason there is so much support being thrown at this is because there are no other major fires they have to fight right now.
