Fire Information

On Tuesday, September 8 late morning a grass fire started near Almeda Drive in the Quiet Village area of Ashland adjacent to the City’s wastewater treatment plant.  With extreme fire conditions and a red flag alert in place, the winds and lack of moisture caused the fire to spread quickly.

Ashland Fire and Rescue and the Ashland Police Department, along with Jackson County Fire District 5 were immediately dispatched and worked to protect lives and structures.  The fire quickly spread along the Bear Creek greenway and created significant spotting at Billings Ranch and to the property around exit 19. The fire then spread through the communities of Talent and Phoenix  causing widespread destruction.

As the fire spread outside of Ashland city limits. Jackson County and eventually the State of Oregon Fire Marshall’s office took over control of the fire with the City of Ashland providing support for both.
