MADRAS, OR -- A Jefferson County shop was destroyed in a Thursday evening fire that spread to nearby grass and brush.  When firefighters arrived on NW Elk Drive, about eight miles west of Madras, their first priority was to protect nearby structures. A wildland fire unit was second on-scene and contained the grass fire at less than an acre. The third truck then focused on extinguishing the fire in the pole barn, as well as salvage and overhaul.

 

Crews worked for more than three hours in 100-degree heat. The fire was initially reported by the homeowner at about 7:30 p.m.; its cause is under investigation.
