Burn pile flames up on Tooze Road

Photo Credit: COURTESY OF TUALATIN VALLEY FIRE & RESCUE  - A 50-foot-by-50-foot burn pile near a barn flamed up Monday night. Firefighters responded to a possible barn fire Monday night at 13980 S.W. Tooze Road in rural Sherwood. Crews from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue reported seeing a column of smoke when they approached the structure shortly after 11:39 p.m. and called for additional resources. Upon arrival, crews found an approximately 50-foot-by-50-foot burn pile, estimated to be 10 feet high, fully engulfed.

Firefighters immediately began dousing the pile with large volumes of water and foam to extinguish the fire and minimize the possibility of re-ignition. Water was shuttled to the scene using water tenders. No structures were immediately in danger and no injuries were reported.
