Brush fire halted in Roy

Firefighters largely extinguished a brush fire on Harrington Road Monday evening.

As of 6:39 p.m., the flames were out, but crews were working to fully extinguish hot spots 20 to 30 feet up a tree. The fire was located about 3/4 mile west of Roy Road along a steep creek bed, Forest Grove Fire & Rescue spokesperson Matt Johnston told the Banks Post in a message.

“There is no risk of the fire spreading to any nearby structures,” FGF&R said in a tweet.

The area the fire is in is along the border of Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and Forest Grove Fire & Rescue’s service territory, and less than a mile south of the Banks Fire District’s service territory.

All three agencies responded to the fire.

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue plans to ban outdoor burning in their district starting Tuesday morning.
