Firefighters are on the scene of a growing wildfire in rural Lake County, according to the South Central Oregon Fire Management Partnership (SCOFMP). Officials are calling it the Flynn Fire.

The fire is located about 11 miles northwest of the little community of Adel, east of Lakeview along Highway 140. SCOFMP said that the fire is roughly 50 acres or larger at this time.

"Be advised smoke is affecting visibility on Hwy 140 please avoid the area if possible," the partnership said.

Multiple units from the Bureau of Land Management and rural fire agencies are on-scene.

Information in the Tweet below indicates that fire managers may have been conducting prescribed burns over the past few days about 20 miles east of Lakeview, with smoke visible from Hwy 140 near Adel. SCOFMP published a new Tweet saying that the Flynn Fire was not connected to those burns and was about 10 miles distant from the South Warner RX burn area.

"Please be advised the Flynn Fire is not the result of any federal prescribed fire activity. This is a wildfire! Multiple units are on scene, and actively fighting to stop the spread of the fire.The cause of the fire in currently under investigation," the partnership said.
