EUGENE, Ore. -- A grass fire burning in west Eugene Monday afternoon is contained.

It was reported in the area of South Danebo Avenue and Pacific Avenue after 3 p.m. Multiple fire trucks were on scene working to fight the blaze, which burned in an open field in an area with trails. 

As of 5 p.m. the fire had grown to five to eight acres. While the fire is contained, smoke will be visible throughout the evening, police say. Crews with Eugene-Springfield Fire will remain at the site to deal with hot spots.

Firefighters were staged on Terry Street as there are structures on that side of the fire. Earlier in the day, nearby businesses said they were concerned because the fire picked up fast, and conditions were windy. 

Smoke is impacting West 11th Avenue, and residents are asked to use caution.

A second fire is burning on Bridges Lane near Fern Ridge Lake.

KEZI 9 News has a crew at the scene.
