Salem Firefighters Knock Down Blaze at Minto Brown ParkSalem-News.com
Thick underbrush and grass made it difficult for firefighters to know if the brush fire was completely out; at this point they say the cause is undetermined and it is currently under investigation.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Salem firefighters responded to a second alarm brush fire at Minto Brown Park Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. The fire was in the 2200 block of Minto Island Road S.
Deputy Fire Marshal Jeff Mack with Salem Fire, says upon arrival, crews found about half an acre burning.
Mack says it was difficult to get to due to the remote location inside the park.
"Grass Rigs from Salem Fire Department and Keizer Fire Districts made way into the remote location and extinguished the fire."
Mack says the thick underbrush and grass made the fire difficult to overhaul to ensure the fire was completely out.
Altogether, there were 4 Grass Rigs, 2 Tenders, 4 Engines and a Battalion Chief on scene with a total of 19 firefighters.
The fire cause is undetermined at this time and is currently under investigation.
