Local Fire Fighters Sent To Wiley Fire

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon State Fire Marshal is sending two structural task forces to help fight the Wiley Fire burning near Sweet Home. The fire is burning in extremely steep terrain near Buck Mountain. It's burned 165 acres and there's no containment. The Linn County Sheriff's Office has issued Level 1 Be Ready and Level 2 Get Set evacuation warnings for residents. The structural task forces from Multnomah and Polk counties will work to protect homes and other buildings near the fire. The heat wave expected next week could help the fire spread.
