BEND, OR -- Deschutes National Forest officials plan two prescribed burns Tuesday, if conditions allow. 

 

A 77-acre operation in Shevlin Park will be highly visible to people in and around Bend; the unit is north of Skyliner’s Road, across from the Phil’s Trailhead turnoff. Ignitions are expected between 9 and 10 a.m. and should be complete by 2 p.m. During the burn, smoke could impact the area, including the western portions of Tetherow. Smoke may settle in the evening, impacting residents of Northwest Crossing. 
 
The other burn planned for Tuesday is five miles north of Hole in the Ground, 22 miles southeast of La Pine. That 1,000 acre burn could take two days to complete. Smoke may temporarily lower visibility along Highway 31, and impact residences near Fort Rock and Hole in the Ground.
