Green Spur Fire
Firefighters with the Douglas Forest Protective Association responded to and suppressed a holdover lightning fire Tuesday morning, located about 14 miles southwest of Sutherlin. The Green Spur Fire was located by a BLM employee who was working near Green Butte and reported the fire. Firefighters stopped the Green Spur Fire at a quarter acre of grass and brush.
With the warm and dry weather forecasted for the coming days, additional holdover lightning fires from last week’s lightning storm may pop up. DFPA will continue to monitor the lightning affected areas using a combination of aviation resources, ground resources and DFPA’s fire detection cameras.
