Fire officials from the Molalla Fire District as well as the Oregon Department of Forestry responded to a small brush fire off Dickey Prairie Road just before Glen Avon Tuesday afternoon.

MFD chief Vince Stafford said the fire burned about one-half of an acre of scotch broom and blackberry bushes, which can ignite fairly easily when they dry out.

Stafford said they have't determined a cause for the fire yet.

There was no damage to nearby property, and there were no injuries to cattle or people in the area.
