Wildfire Burns Workshop, 10 Acres on Meadows Rd

A wildfire speeding through dry grass burned a large workshop and 10 acres of woodland this afternoon along Meadows Rd. Structural fire protection engines from Jackson County Fire District 3 and wildland fire engines, a bulldozer and three helicopters from the Oregon Department of Forestry kept the fire from causing more damage.

Crews were dispatched to the fire around 4:15 p.m. and had the wildfire contained by nightfall.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
