A fire near Osborne Bay south of Electric City is burning sage brush and other vegetation in high winds.

Helicopters from the Department of Natural Resources and the Bureau of Land Management are helping fight the fire along with fire fighters from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and the departments from Electric City, Grand Coulee, Coulee Dam, Elmer City, and Lincoln County.

Electric City Fire Chief Mark Payne said the fire started at approximately 12:55 p.m. and is suspected to have started from a bullet ricochet.

There is no evacuation notice as of 3:30 p.m., and SR-155 is still open to traffic.
