News Release
Multiple Emergency Crews on Scene of Brush Fire in Rural Marion County - 11/16/19

On November 16th, shortly before 7:30 pm, emergency crews were dispatched to a report of a brush fire in the area of Spring Villa St SE near Grade Road SE, in rural Marion County.  Deputies are assisting fire officials with notifying residents nearby to be prepared for possible evacuations.  There are currently eight homes which have been placed in a “ready” status for evacuations.

At this time the fire is estimated to be approximately 10 acres in size.  Fire crews from Silverton Fire District, Drakes Crossing Fire District and Oregon Department of Forestry are on scene.  This area has limited roadway access which needs to remain clear for firefighting apparatus.  We are asking unnecessary traffic to avoid the area. The PIO is not responding to the scene.
