Chief: Stray bullet caused small fire at Shedd pistol club
ALBANY, Ore. (AP) — An eastern Oregon fire chief says a stray bullet caused a small fire in one of the pistol bays at a Shedd rifle and pistol club.
Brownsville Fire Chief Kevin Rogers says an errant bullet sparked the fire when it ricocheted off a rock and into the grass.
The Albany Democrat-Herald reports multiple agencies responded to the Friday fire at the Albany Rifle & Pistol Club.
It took crews about 20 minutes to put out the quarter-acre fire.
Rogers says no structures were threatened.
No injuries were reported.
The Oregon Department of Forestry chose to remove a couple of trees.
The Halsey and Tangent fire departments assisted Brownsville personnel with the fire.
