TYGH VALLEY, OR -- A debris burn in Tygh Valley took off Sunday afternoon, pushed by winds through grass and other light fuels. Oregon Department of Forestry and US Forest Service crews responded, with help from Tygh Valley, Wamic and Juniper Flat Fire Departments. They had the fire mostly lined by Sunday night and stopped its forward progress. No structures were damaged.  

 

Two five-person crews, five engines and overhead personnel worked to complete fire lines, Monday, and extinguish hot spots. Winds are expected to reduce and cooler temperatures should help the effort. 

 

The 500-acre Shadybrook Fire highlights continued dry conditions, despite cooler and damper weather. Officials say it serves as a good reminder that "while fire season is no longer in effect, fire danger can quickly change and caution should be used in outdoor activities."
