NEAR GOLD HILL, Ore.  — ODF is responding to a fire in Gold Hill area. It’s burning in an area that some say is especially dry and of concern.

ODF says the fire is located at Highway 234 and is 5 acres. ODF says that the fire is on Nugget Butte, 2 miles north of Gold Hill and Highway 234 is closed in that area.

Terrain is steep and heavily-wooded, burning quickly up a ridge. Steven Sandberg reports that helicopters have been seen dumping water on the fire, as well as air tankers have flown over and drop fire retardant.
