Bear Creek Fire Held to 4-Acres
Fire crews from three different agencies held a grass fire located between Crater Lake Ford and Interstate Five to about four acres Thursday afternoon.
The fire, reported just before 3 p.m., slowed I-5 traffic in the northbound lanes for about an hour and a half. The blaze burned through dry grass along the Bear Creek Greenway and on both sides of the creek.
Crews from Jackson County Fire District 3, Medford Fire and Rescue, and the Oregon department of Forestry attacked the fire from all sides. No injuries were reported.
