Chimney Fires Keeping Firefighters Busy
By Aaron Nilsson/KTVL.comGRANTS PASS, Ore. -- A reminder to have your chimney cleaned as the Rural/Metro Fire Department in Grants Pass responded to three chimney fires in the last two weeks.
Firefighters said they average about ten chimney fires per year, but this is the most they've seen in such a short period of time.
"It doesn't seem like a whole lot, but for our area it is quite a bit. This is the most in a time period we've had especially spreading outside the flue. A lot of times, we get there and it hasn't escaped from the flue," Lieutenant Mike Shaw with Rural/Metro, said.
Fire crews and chimney experts recommend an annual inspection and cleaning to make sure your chimney is safe.
Smokey's Stoves in Grants Pass said to schedule your inspection in the spring or summer, so you don't have to wait into the colder winter months to use your fireplace.

Another One Rides the Bus
By Aaron Nilsson/KTVL.comMEDFORD, Ore. --The new “Commuter Line” is picking up steam and getting more riders.
Rogue Valley Transportation District's “commuter line” runs from Grants Pass to Medford and back.
Currently, R.V.T.D. managers said more riders use the commuter line to go from Medford to Grants Pass.
It's funded by Josephine Community Transit in Grants Pass and only costs two dollars per ride each way.
It's an option even riders who don't normally go to Grants Pass will give a try.
"I think that's a good deal especially with gas prices right now and how the economy is and people not getting enough money working. I think it's a good deal, two bucks to go all the way to Grants Pass when it could cost 10 bucks of gas just to get there," bus rider, Eric Ziegler, said.
R.V.T.D. managers said it's run for two months so far as part of a three year pilot-grant.
