Crews Deal With Pair Of Fires

Fire crews made two trips to McDonald Way in The Dalles on Wednesday to deal with fires.  The first call was just after 5 p.m.  Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue’s Jay Wood says the fire was limited to under one acre.  It did burn a motorhome, car, and outbuilding.  Wood said the fire was human-caused, but could not release specifics.  He added access was an issue, as a bridge with a weight limit too light for a heavier engine led to crews waiting for smaller brush trucks to arrive.  Then just after 11 p.m. crews were brought out again to deal with a spot fire that occurred as a result of the first fire, and it burned about half-an-acre.  Crews from Dallesport, Mosier, the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, and Oregon Department of Forestry assisted MCFR in dealing with the fires.  No one was injured in either fire.
