Fire Crew Prepares For Oregon Country Fair

Rachael McDonald

Drought conditions mean officials across the state are on high alert for fire danger. The Oregon Country Fair is held in the forested land along the Long Tom River near Veneta. The fair has a fire crew that's in charge of education and prevention before during and after the event. KLCC's Rachael McDonald caught up with a member of the crew as he rode up on his bicycle.
