Bay Road fire is false alarm

Smoke was seen rising from the roof of a residential property on an island at 5650 Yaquina Bay Road east of Newport Wednesday afternoon. The Newport Fire Department responded to that location but later confirmed the smoke was from a bonfire and not an emergency. Fire Chief Rob Murphy said the department gets calls at least once a year about smoke at that property, and is working to get in contact with the property owner to ask for them to call ahead before future burns.
