MERLIN, Ore. -- Today a Fire Prevention Specialist from Rural Metro Fire went around making sure homes are "firewise" — defensible in the event that a wildfire comes knocking.
The guidelines that Rural Metro Fire Department follows are all under a law that was passed in 1997.
“If a fire does come through here, fire crews can come in and they can successful defend the fire,” Mark Jones with Rural Metro Fire said.
