It’s that time of year when Deschutes and Ochoco National Forest Officials start preparing the wooded area to prevent quick spreading wildfires. The Sisters Ranger District will work with the Oregon Department of Forestry on a 120-acre burn six miles west of Sisters in the Four Mile Butte area. Also, a small 25 to 90 acre burn is planned two miles west of La Pine near Burgess Road as part of the Pickle Project. And in Prineville, BLM officials will be doing some pile burning in several areas just south of the city. Forest officials say the burns should take one to two days and should be completed by Thursday.
