A reward of $1,500 is being offered by the Oregon Department of Forestry Southwest District, and others, for information leading to an arrest following several fires determined to be arson in northeastern Jackson County this fire season. The reward is being offered by the Rogue Forest Protective Association (RFPA), the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) Southwest Oregon District’s governing board, and Murphy Timber Investments. According to ODF, since late July, firefighters with the ODF Southwest Oregon District have responded to at least 18 small fires in and around the Prospect area, all of which are being considered arson. Ten were reported on ODF-protected land and eight were mutual aid incidents, in conjunction with our partners at the U.S. Forest Service Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest.
