CANYON CITY - A structure and brush fire has prompted closure of U.S. Highway 395, about five miles south of Canyon City.

The Oregon Department of Transportation closed the highway about 3 p.m., with no projection for reopening.

Fire crews from the John Day area were dispatched to the fire, which reportedly burned a barn at milepost 6.
