GRANTS PASS, Ore -- Rural Metro Fire wants to remind people to check past burn piles.
A burn pile from two weeks ago started a small grass fire near Grants Pass on Friday.
Rural Metro Fire Department says warm and dry weather may have fueled the embers that were hidden in large logs. The department also says that fires that cross property lines may be subject to citation by the Oregon Department of Forestry.
This weekend much of our region will be seeing that warm and dry weather.
