Hay Trailer Fire Boswell Rd.
At 2:58pm June 7th, North Douglas County Fire & EMS was dispatched to a structure fire in the 5700 block of Boswell Rd. in Yoncalla. As crews responded, dispatch notified units that a hay trailer was on fire near a barn and not a structure. The hay trailer had been pulled away from the barn and into the middle of Boswell Rd. away from any structures. First arriving engines knocked down the fire within minutes and remained on scene just over two hours for mop up. The fire was started by combustion due to moisture in the hay. North Douglas County Fire & EMS responded with two engines, two water tenders and one ambulance with 10 firefighters. North Douglas County Fire & EMS was assisted by Douglas Forest Protective Association, Douglas County Sheriff's and Douglas County Public Works.
