Oregon City brush fire controlled, crews to remain in area

OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say a brush fire Friday near Oregon City that prompted some “Go Now” evacuations for residents in about a dozen homes is controlled. Clackamas Fire said on Twitter at about 2:10 p.m. Friday that crews were working to contain a fire on South Neibur Road and that some people in that area should evacuate. The fire department said later Friday that 17 structures were threatened but no one was injured and no structures were lost. Evacuation levels were reduced with all those told to leave immediately to “get ready” to go.  The fire was estimated at about 40 acres. Officials say fire crews would stay in the area tonight.
