Crews contain brush fire in Beavercreek, a great reminder! (Photo) - 09/02/21

Today at approximately 1:30pm, Clackamas Fire received a report of a brush fire on the 24000 block of S. Ridge Rd. in Beavercreek.

Crews arrived to find approximately 2-3 acres of grass burning with two structures being threatened, one of which contained livestock.

The fire was upgraded and more resources responded.

Firefighters were able to divide and quickly control the rapidly spreading fire which had grown to almost 4 acres. The two structures and the sheep were also saved.

The fire originated in an outside burn pit. The resident had lit some unwanted papers/debris and left the fire unattended. 

Clackamas Fire wants to remind everybody that we are experiencing unseasonably high temperatures, low humidity, and increasing wind. Please be mindful of these conditions as you consider your activities during the upcoming, extended weekend.

Use caution when enjoying recreational fires. 

            -keep recreational fires to 3 ft. in diameter by 2 ft. high

            -Burn only seasoned, cut firewood. No trash or yard debris

            -Keep recreational fires a minimum of 25 ft. from any structure. If you’re using an     approved fire pit, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for how and where to place them.

            -Keep a hose or source of water available just in case! 

Please remember, Clackamas County is currently at a “High Fire Danger” level and backyard burning is not allowed.
