Eugene, OR.  Eugene Springfield Fire crews are on scene of a small grass fire in the 2600 block of Bell Avenue in West Eugene.  Firefighters were alerted to the fire shortly before 6:30 PM Saturday evening.  Firefighters arrived to find a slow moving grass fire near the rail road tracks.  The fire was extinguished and did not damage any property, the cause is undetermined.  This fire is a good reminder that it takes very little sun and heat to dry out small fuels like grass making ignition easier.  While we are not yet there, fire seasons continue to begin earlier and last longer.  Spring is a good time to get rid of old dead vegetation to reduce the risk of wildfires burning in our communities.
