With hot and dry conditions yesterday, the Pete’s Lake Fire grew from 320 acres to 487 acres. Most of the growth was on the western edge of the fire.
This morning fire officials observed moderate fire behavior, with some torching. Given the continuing warming and drying conditions over the weekend, it is expected that the fire will continue to grow and produce a smoke column that will be highly visible to the public in Central Oregon.
