ROGUE RIVER, Ore. —

UPDATE: Firefighters are now actively mopping up the Fry Peak Fire north of Rogue River, according to the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF).

The fire was first reported around 7:30 p.m. on Sunday night. An engine responded to the area, loated above May Creek Road on private land about 14 miles north of Rogue River. There, firefighters confirmed a 10-acre fire slowly burning through an area being salvaged after the 2018 Garner Complex Fires.

"Due to the minimal spread of the fire overnight, two engines and two hand crews were dispatched Monday morning," ODF said. "Within a short period of time, firefighters were able to line the entire perimeter and begin mop-up operations."

Crews will remain on scene until the fire is contained. No evacuations or road closures were ordered, and the fire's cause remains under investigation.

UPDATE: The Fry Peak Fire is now completely lined, according to Natalie Weber with ODF. It was stopped at about 10 acres.

Weber said that the fire burns in an area clear-cut during the Garner Complex fires of 2018.
