EUGENE, Ore. -- Eugene Springfield Fire crews are currently operating at a fire off Highway 99 and Roosevelt Blvd. in West Eugene.
Northbound traffic on Hwy 99 is now down to one lane of travel.
Crews responded to a reported pallet fire on an industrial property and found a large fire spreading to grass and brush, threatening commercial buildings and power lines.
The fire is currently contained, but crews say they have a lot of work ahead to address hot spots in the heavy fuel load.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Crews say the public can expect to see smoke in the area for the next couple of hours.
They want to thank Schnitzer Steel for bringing a forklift over to assist crews pulling apart stacks of wood.
