Beginning Friday, all lands in the Ochoco and Deschutes National Forests and the Prineville Bureau of Land Management will move to an Industrial Fire Precaution Level Three.
Lisa Clark with the Bureau of Land Management says there is a partial shutdown of cable yarding and power saws between the hours of 1 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Additionally, welding or cutting metal or other spark emitting operations have restrictions on the hours they can be used.
There are some exceptions and requirements with machinery in the forests. You can contact the BLM office or their website for additional information. (www.fs.usda.gov/centraloregon)
