MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - A grass fire on airport property in the southern Oregon city of Medford sent up a big plume of smoke visible for miles Thursday evening before the blaze was extinguished.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports that a hay mower apparently started the fire, which burned on a large field owned by the airport.
