PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - Voters in Hermiston and Stanfield have approved a consolidated fire district that will encompass much of western Umatilla County.

The East Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/BCDEEY ) that voters passed measures to dissolve the Hermiston and Stanfield districts, and another to form a new district and establish funding.

Voters rejected a similar merger in November 2014.

The new district will be named Umatilla County Fire District 1 and it takes effect in July.
