ASHLAND, Ore. -- Multiple agencies responded to a fire near the Toothpick Trail head Monday morning.

Ashland Fire-Rescue was called up to Tolman Creek Road just before 6:00. The cause is still under investigation. Fire crews said with morning weather conditions, they were able to contain the half-acre fire within an hour.

"In the early morning hours we have the highest humidity we're going to have for the day. We typically don't have much wind at that time in the morning so that certainly did help firefighters, cooler temperatures as well," Margueritte Hickman with Ashland Fire said.

Ashland Fire worked with Jackson County Fire District Five, the Oregon Department of Forestry, US Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management.
