green butte fire

The Green Butte Fire, which started Tuesday, is burning 13 miles southeast of La Pine in the Deschutes National Forest. 

The Cedar Creek Fire, which is the source of much of the smoke affecting Bend, grew Wednesday night, going from 500 acres to 900 acres, according to the Willamette National Forest.

The fire began after a lightning storm Monday and is burning about 3.5 miles west of Waldo Lake on the Willamette National Forest.
