Medco B Fire 05/05/19 Update

Reported yesterday, the Medco B fire is located near Medco Pond just east of Hwy 62 outside Butte Falls. As of this evening, the fire is reported at 90% lined and 345 acres and the cause is under investigation.

“Big thanks to our partners with the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management for the interagency coordination,” said ODF’s Southwest Oregon District Forester, Dave Larson. “The success of our strong partnerships is especially appreciated during these pre-season fires and warmer conditions.”

Resources included a Type 1 helicopter (Saturday), multiple tenders, dozers, hand crews, and a USFS 20 person hot shot crew. Crews will continue strengthening the perimeter, eliminating hot spots, and working to mop-up the fire.
