NEAR SAMS VALLEY, Ore. -- A water tender near the Ramsey Canyon fire overturned Sunday morning, sending the driver to the hospital.

Medford Fire-Rescue said fuel was leaking near the Ramsey Road and Meadows Road, and crews were working to clean it up.

A public information officer with the Ramsey Canyon Fire information line said the driver sustained a non-life threatening injury. She also added this is in an area with strong containment lines, so the fuel isn't a fire concern.
