Two fires keep crews busy in Gaston

Posted: Updated:
GASTON, OR (KPTV) -

Dangerous fire conditions sent Gaston Rural Fire District scrambling to two separate grass fires Wednesday afternoon.

Moments after crews had cleared a small grass fire on Southwest Spring Hill Road, they were sent to another grass fire on Northwest Goodin Creek Road.

Gaston firefighters and crews from the Oregon Department of Forestry quickly put out the fire. It burned one tenth of an acre.

So far, there's no word on what started the fires.

The first fire happened at around 1:30 in the afternoon. The second one began about an hour later.

High winds and drought-like conditions have created extreme fire danger that could last another day or two.
