Crews with the Coos Forest Protective Association responded to a fire on Libby Lane just two miles west of Coos Bay Friday morning at about 1:30 a.m.
Jef Chase says the fire was human caused, but the specific cause is still under investigation. The fire started in a four-year old timber stand and burned about one third of an acre.
Chase says crews worked through the night to put out the fire by sunrise. Public use restrictions are in place across southern Oregon to help prevent human-caused fires like this one. Residents are asked to do their part to prevent wildfires.
