COBURG HILLS, Ore. — Firefighters are working from the ground and the sky to put out a fire burning about two and a half acres in the Coburg Hills.
A helicopter dumped water on the blaze on Friday evening as more than a dozen firefighters worked to extinguish it. Officials from the Oregon Department of Forestry say they will have to manually dig a line around the fire because the area is so steep. They expect to work through the night, but say they don’t think it will spread.
ODF says the fire does appear to be human-caused, but it’s currently still under investigation.
