A Lightning strike triggered a fire that is burning through rugged terrain in central Oregon.
The lightning hit on July 23 north of Christmas Valley and northeast of Fort Rock.
The hot and windy weather in the region caused the fire to spread. It grew to about 130 acres on Wednesday.
It is being called the Lava Fire.
Crews are using water tenders and air tankers to try and get control of the situation.
However, the remote and rugged terrain is making it tough for crews to safely attack the fire head-on.
Communities in the area could see smoke for several weeks if the weather remains hot and dry, according to firefighters.
