• Fire, 8:50 p.m., 20000 block of Blodgett Road, assisted Blodgett-Summit Rural Fire on a structure fire. Philomath responded with a duty officer, engine and a water tender with six total personnel to assist. Capt. Rich Saalsaa said the fire was in a residence’s garage and upon arrival, it was largely out. “The fire was caused by plastic sheeting wrapped around an outside lighting fixture in preparation for painting. The lights came on, melted the plastic, which caught fire, and then caught the eve of the side of the garage on fire.” Saalsaa said quick actions by the homeowner limited the damage when they used a garden hose to largely extinguish the fire. Six other Philomath Fire & Rescue personnel covered at Station 201 while the others were at Blodgett.
