Fire season is still in effect and the Pole Creek Fire is still not fully contained.  With hunting season in full swing, hunters need to remember that conditions are still very volatile.

 

Sommer Moore with the Pole Creek Fire says overnight temperatures may dip below freezing; but starting a fire in an area where it's restricted can cost you. "Should a fire start because of an illegal campfire that they had. They could potentially be responsible for the cost to suppress that fire, in addition to whatever fine they receive for having an illegal campfire."

 

Restrictions differ from area to area, so consult the campground or forest you plan to visit for the rules.

 

On a good note: the weather forecast says there could be some "wetting rain" with the next system to come into Central Oregon over the next few days.
