From Tri-City Herald news servicesNovember 29, 2012 

BEND, Ore. -- A pair of webcams installed above Lake Chinook will give Central Oregon its first fire lookout cameras.

The high-tech images will be accessible to local firefighters on their laptops or phones.

The Bend Bulletin reported the cameras provide a 360-degree view of the 40-square-mile district, as well as the edges of the Crooked River National Grasslands, Deschutes National Forest and Warm Springs Indian Reservation.
