Senator Wyden Gets Assessment on Current Fire Season


It's burned 27 thousand acres to date and is 85 percent contained.

 

U.S. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden met with U.S. Forest Service Officials Tuesday to assess what went right and wrong this season.

 

Senator Wyden says the most obvious take away is that prevention and treatment done in Oregon forests help prevent the fire season from being a much more serious one.

 

46 thousand acres burned in Central Oregon forests this year, which is below normal.

 

Senator Wyden feels we need to do more thinning and prevention work in the forests to prevent bigger fires in the future.
