Fry Peak Fire 10/21/19 PM Update

Firefighters with the Oregon Department of Forestry Southwest Oregon District are actively mopping up the Fry Peak Fire, located on private land approximately 14 miles north of Rogue River. The fire was initially reported Sunday night just before 7:30 p.m. An engine was dispatched to the area above May Creek road, where firefighters were able to confirm an estimated 10-acre fire moving slowly in an area under salvage operations following the 2018 Garner Complex.

Due to the minimal spread of the fire overnight, two engines and two hand crews were dispatched Monday morning. Within a short period of time, firefighters were able to line the entire perimeter and begin mop-up operations. Crews will remain on scene until the fire is contained.

No evacuations or road closures were ever made. The cause of this fire remains under investigation.
