Just before 9:30 p.m. Friday, engine crews from ODF’s Grants Pass and Medford units were dispatched to a series of grass fires, many of which were caused by fireworks. Most of the fires were extinguished at less than a tenth of an acre in size.
The fires in Josephine County were scattered from Merlin to Selma to Williams. In Jackson County, crews responded to fires along Table Rock Rd, inside the city limits of Medford and up on Anderson Butte.
The fire calls trickled to nearly nothing by midnight.
