When the currently burning wildfires in Oregon are finally put out, there’s a good chance public agencies and private companies will follow a procedure developed after the 1966 Oxbow fire in southern Oregon. Shane Rossbach with BLM says the Oxbow was historic as the first fire put out solely by human efforts. Those crews had no help from the weather.  The 42,000 acre fire required government and private fire crews work together. He says that cooperation continued in the development of plans to re-plant, manage and protect forests.
