KTVZ is reporting that wildfires have broken out near Tumalor Reservoir. According to the station:

One fire was said to be due west of the end of Tumalo Reservoir Road, which turns into Bull Flat Road and dead-ends at the north-south Brooks-Scanlon Logging Road (also called Forest Service Road 4606).

Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center in Prineville was sending several crews as well as air support.

The fires reportedly were burning on Cascade Timberlands property and were not reported to be threatening any structures, though residents on some nearby roads were advised of the fire and to be ready to evacuate later if they got closer.
