The Illinois Valley Fire District and the Oregon Department of Forestry says on July 4, 2019 at 4:00 a.m. a structure fire on North Gold Canyon Drive spread into the wildland. 

Crews say the 35 foot RV trailer was engulfed in flames shortly after the 911 call was placed. All residents escaped the fire safely. Fire crews say the fire quickly spread into the wildland because large amounts of brush had not been cleared from around the trailer.

Besides extinguishing the trailer, IVFD and Rural Metro says they helped ODF go after the wildland fire. ODF says it quickly put a fire break around the fire and held the fire under one tenth of an acre. 

The Illinois Valley Fire District says all fire crews were hampered by a car parked at the beginning of a fairly long driveway. They say crews had to spend time manually sliding the front of the car into the street enabling it to be pushed out of the way.

The cause of the fire was determined by IVFD Fire Marshal to inappropriate use of a lit candle. IVFD Rehab Unit, Pacific Power, and IVFD CERT also responded and provided services.
