Crook County Firefighters Battle Three Fires In Less Than Two Hours

PRINEVILLE, OR  -- Crook County Firefighters were all over the place Tuesday, fighting three different fires in less than 2-hours. Division Chief Russ Deboodt says crews responded to a hay fire just before noon. It was caused by welding which lit grass on fire then spread to 60 tons of hay, all of which was destroyed. Shortly after noon crews responded to a field burn that got away when there was a sudden wind shift, damaging trees and utility lines. Then about 1-45 a travel trailer fire on Southeast Pecos Lane in Prineville. Deboodt says the trailer was a complete loss but crews were able to limit damage to a nearby stick home to an exterior wall.
