MADRAS, OR -- Jefferson County fire crews responded to two small grass fires, Thursday; and officials say they started with residential open burns that blew out of control in the wind. 


The first occurred just after 1 p.m. in Willow Creek Canyon, northwest of Madras. It was contained at about 1.5 acres. The second was about two hours later on Rocky Lane (pictured), northeast of Lake Billy Chinook. Crews stopped it at about an acre. 


Despite cooler temperatures and the official end of fire season, local fire officials say fuels are still very dry and the chance of a fire escaping is still high.
