A controlled fire burned past protection lines on Tuesday afternoon near Oak Grove, according to fire officials.

While U.S. Forest Service firefighters were conducting a fuel maintenance and controlled burn of roughly 25 acres, the fire blazed past its intended area.

Just before 3 p.m. it was burning at 35 acres near State Route 79 about four miles west of Oak Grove. The blaze burned in light wind, up a hill in the area.

USFS requested mutual aid and strike teams to assist the firefighters.

No injuries have been reported, and no structures or power lines were reportedly damaged during the blaze.
