CANYONVILLE, Ore. — Fire crews are responding to a growing wildfire in Douglas County, reportedly located northeast of Canyonville.

The Douglas Forest Protective Association (DFPA) said that the fire was first called in shortly after 11 a.m. The first engine on the scene reported that the fire was roughly three acres in size, burning through logging slash.

DFPA is calling it the Days Creek Fire, due to its location off of Days Creek Road, about 14 miles to the northeast of Canyonville.

As the fire continued to grow, fire crews began an "aggressive initial attack" both by air and on the ground, keeping the fire to roughly 35 acres.

"Four Type 2 Helicopters and one Type 1 Helicopter have been working on the fire, in addition to two Large Air Tankers and two Single Engine Air Tankers," DFPA said. "Numerous ground resources, including engines, hand crews, and equipment are also on scene of the fire, working to construct fire trails around the blaze."

Local landowners, loggers, and staff from the Umpqua National Forest have helped to contain the fire.

"Currently, no homes are threatened by the Days Creek Fire and the cause is under investigation," DFPA said. "Resources assigned to the incident will remain engaged on the fire throughout the day and overnight, working to contain the blaze."

This is a developing story and will be updated with more details as they emerge.
