MEDFORD, Ore. — Firefighters on the Fort Complex Fire in southwestern Oregon have wrapped the 90-year-old Butte Fork Tool House in a fire-resistant sheath to protect it from approaching flames.

The reflective wrap, which is reusable, is made of fiberglass. Fortunately the fire has not reached the structure, but firefighters thought the precaution was warranted last week.
