The wildfire that threatened the Kah-Nee-Ta resort has forced rafting to be closed on a segment of the Lower Deschutes River.

The fire has burned to the shore of the river and could trap rafters who camp during their trip.

The area of the river that's closed is from Warm Springs to Nena.  Rafters can use the permit on the section of river to the north.
