Many Central Oregonians enjoy going out to the Deschutes National Forest to celebrate the Fourth of July.

 

But if you are planning on going out to the woods, you could face up to 6 months in jail and up to $5,000 in fines if you bring fireworks with you.  Jean Nelson-Dean, Public Affairs Officer for Deschutes National Forest, says they are not trying to keep people from having a good time, rather they just want to keep everyone safe.

 

"So we are just reminding folks that we know this is a special time to celebrate and a lot of folks like to go out camping. But just as a reminder, leave the fireworks at home."  Because fireworks can cause forest fires, they are even more dangerous in areas that are prone to fire like Central Oregon.  Nelson-Dean also says campers should make sure to fully extinguish any campfires.  If it too hot to touch, it is not completely out and therefore is also a forest fire threat.
