Medford, Ore. -- Medford Fire and Rescue crews are already busy this 4th of July, hours before fireworks light up the night sky.

Shortly after 10 this morning crews responded to the Rogue Regency where a fire at a nearby transient camp had spread to a field. The fire's been contained and was small in size, roughly a quarter of an acre.

Investigators don't believe it was intentionally set, but tell NBC5 News this isn't the first time they've had to respond to fires from the transient camp.
