GRANT COUNTY – Firefighters have certainly been busy following the lightning activity. That’s not all; reports an incident from hot ash, or a campfire, about 12.1 miles south of Prairie City. The Slide Fire was contained and controlled to a tenth of an acre Wednesday by Malheur National Forest resources.

Also yesterday, Oregon Department of Forestry firefighters responded to Keeney Point to a small wildfire that was contained to a tenth of an acre, and then another one in the Lick Creek area—also contained to a tenth of an acre. Stay posted for updates.
