grass fire helicopter shotMEDFORD, Ore. — A grass fire is flaming on Surrey Drive in Medford right now. One helicopter and about 50 firefighters, including crews from the Oregon Department of Forestry, are on the¬†ground ¬†working to knock down the fire.

It’s at about 8 acres now, and fire officials still aren’t sure how it started. Firefighters did tell us that the shifting winds are playing a big roll in knocking these flames down today, making it more difficult for firefighters.

We’ll have more information as to a cause tonight at 5.
