ODF crews battle third post-season wildfire in a week

Firefighters continued to mop up the remains of a 12-acre wildfire Monday that ignited north of Merlin over the weekend.

The Quartz Creek fire, burning in a clear cut on private industrial land off Quartz Creek Road, drew Oregon Department of Forestry crews Saturday night. When firefighters arrived, they estimated the blaze to be about 8 acres.
