South Lane County Wildland Fires
May 4, 2013
South Lane County Fire and Rescue responded to two large grass/ wildland fires Saturday. One was quickly contained at 76659 Martin Creek Rd in Cottage Grove. The other fire was near 75200 London Rd, Cottage Grove and was not contained until Saturday evening.
South Lane County Fire and Rescue was assisted by the Oregon Department of Forestry and Weyerhaeuser Inc. with ground crews, water tenders, and a helicopter. At this time the fires are still being investigated and the size of the combined fires was approximately 10 acres. Other fire agencies in Lane County were also busy on Saturday, as there were over 20 other fires in Lane County that afternoon. These events have prompted the Lane County Fire Defense Board to close all open burning in Lane County indefinitely.
South Lane County Fire and Rescue would like to remind all residents to be extra careful with fire. The lack of rain this past spring has made fire conditions extreme.
