MANNING - Fire crews from Banks Fire District 13 were dispatched to reports of a brush fire north of Manning in the area of Cason Road and Levi White Road just before 3 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, according to Banks Fire District public information officer Scott Adams.

Shortly after arriving, crews upgraded the fire to a "full box" fire, a classification that prompts a request for additional fire fighting resources from neighboring fire agencies, including the Oregon Department of Forestry.

Multiple agencies sent apparatus to the scene, including at the least Forest Grove Fire & Rescue and the Oregon Department of Forestry.
