Central Oregon Fire Update


Central Oregon – Storm system moved north out of the Central Oregon area last night and early this morning.  Only two smoke reports last night, one of which was a mistaken report and the other handled by the rural fire department.


The burn ban continues on open fires, including charcoal fires on the Prineville District of the Bureau of Land Management, the Deschutes National Forest and the Crooked River National Grasslands. Campfires are prohibited except in hosted and developed campgrounds. A list is available on either of these two web sites http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/centraloregon/fire/ or http://www.blm.gov/or/districts/prineville/index.php. These restrictions do not apply to affected Wilderness areas on the Deschutes National Forest.


For public and firefighter safety the Area Forest Closure is still in effect within the Green Ridge fire boundary, and roads within the fire perimeter remain closed to public travel. For details and updates please visit the Deschutes National Forest web site http://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/centraloregon/alerts-notices


The National Weather Service is lifting the Red Flag Warning for the Central Oregon area by 11:00 a.m. this morning.
