PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A field fire was threatening to reach a home in Washington County on Friday afternoon, officials said.

According to Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue, crews responded to a field fire at Southwest McNay and McCormick Hill Road around 2:15 p.m. They said the blaze was about half an acre in size at the time.

Flames were reportedly running uphill towards a home as firefighters worked to “simultaneously attack the flame front of the fire and protect the home.”

However, within about half an hour of their arrival, crews had the fire under control and stopped it before it was able to reach any structures.

Thankfully, no injuries were reported as a result of the blaze.

With fires like this in mind, local officials are urging caution to those heading outdoors for Labor Day weekend.

Crews ask those who plan to have a campfire to make sure it is doused with water and is completely out before they head to bed or leave the campsite even for a short time.

Weather conditions change quickly, with lightning and wind suddenly occurring. Be sure to check for fire restrictions in forest areas.  

Furthermore, if you are heading out for hiking or camping, think about an escape route just in case you can’t leave the same way you arrived for any reason.
