Fourmile Lake fire update

Klamath Falls, Ore -- Fire crews have been able to hold a fire burning near Fourmile Lake to under 100 acres.

The 'Launch' fire was first reported Monday morning. The fire isn't accessible by road, fire crews are being taken in by boat or by helicopter.

The fire has forced the closure of the Fourmile lake campground. The Great Meadows Sno-Park is serving as a refueling base for helicopters, and is also closed to the public.

A witness told NBC5 Tuesday that he believes the fire was sparked by a campfire.
