Few Fires Found From Thursday's Thunderstorms

The Oregon Dept. of Forestry's Medford Unit found four small fires (less than a tenth of an acre) following Thursday's thunderstorms. No lightning-caused fires have been found on ODF's Grants Pass Unit.

A reconnaissance flight is scheduled for later today, after the clouds lift from the ridgetops, to search for sleepers.

Rain fell across most of both Jackson and Josephine counties during the storms, but rainfall amounts varied widely.
