MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Members of the Medford City Council oppose a proposal to unite Medford Fire-Rescue with Fire District No. 3.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://is.gd/drxME9 ) each councilor expressed dislike for the idea at a Thursday meeting.

The newspaper reports that a study looking at potential consolidation turned emotional over the past year, and the idea led to suspicions and rumors among fire crews.

Fire District No. 3 last week rejected consolidation with Medford fire but agreed to seek additional cooperation.
