An approximately 10-15 acre fire is burning on Willamette National Forest lands just southwest of Detroit Lake. The fire was reported by a log truck driver at approximately 3 a.m. today. Fire crews have been on scene since then. The fire is on the uphill (SW) side of Forest Service Road 2212 (Kinney Creek Road), and smoke is visible from Highways 22 and 46 and from the community of Detroit. No structures are threatened at this time.
Visitors are asked to avoid the area, including the lower portion of Kinney Creek Road, so that firefighters and helicopters can do their suppression work.
Firefighting is being conducted in cooperation with the Oregon Department of Forestry.
