SPRINGFIELD, Ore.--- Eugene Springfield Fire water rescue crews rescued one person from the McKenzie River in Springfield Saturday evening.
Officials said that three people were reported to be trapped on a log in the middle of the river near RiverBend Hospital. Upon arrival, they found one person needing assistance.
Eugene Springfield Fire is urging citizens to take extra precautions when floating the river this year as debris from the Holiday Farm Fire has increased the number of river hazards.
They said to wear life vests and don't float on unfamiliar waterways.
