GOSHEN, Ore. -- The Level 3 evacuation notice has been canceled for a fire that started in Goshen Wednesday.

The notice was put in place for area residents at about 6 p.m. due to a fast moving fire in the area of the 34000 block of Seavey Loop Road near Garden Valley Road. 

Fire Chief Andrew Smith of Pleasant Hill Goshen Fire & Rescue announced at 9 p.m. on Wednesday that the fire was fully contained and there was only damage to one small outbuilding. No homes were lost.

Smith said the rain will continue to help with any lingering hot spots and there is a firm perimeter around the fire.

The fire was estimated to be 6 to 8 acres in size.

Crews received air support from the nearby Holiday Farm Fire which Smith said was instrumental in stopping the forward progress of the fire. Multiple ground resources also helped extinguish the fire.

The cause is under investigation.
