DEPOE BAY, OR (KPTV) -

The wildfire that started Monday evening two miles east of Depoe Bay has grown to about 200 acres, according to Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.

LCSO said the fire, named the 2500 Road Fire, consists of three main fires that started out as one main fire and rapidly grew due to high winds. The three fires have hand line, or dozer lines most of the way around each of them.

Crews spent Tuesday strengthening the lines and patrolling for more spot fires. An aircraft was used to control the fire.

No evacuations are in effect. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
