PRINEVILLE, OR -- Fire crews held a Crook County brush fire to about an acre Friday afternoon. Firefighters were dispatched to SW Rimrock Road at about 12:15 p.m. and found flames across several properties, threatening at least four buildings, including two houses.
Two CCF&R engines, a water tender, ambulance, several command vehicles and wildland engines from several state and federal agencies responded. They were able to knock down the blaze before it caused any structural damage.
The cause was determined to be a burn barrel left too close to combustible materials.
