The temperatures are beginning to creep up, and eventually summer will get here. Kevin Benton with the Oregon Department of Forestry says now is the time to get your property cleaned up to prevent wildfires. "Items such as pine needles or leaves that may be in the gutters on the roof. That material up there. That material needs to be removed. What we call ladder fuels around the structure. You want to provide a good fuel break around your structure, at least 50 feet around the structure and what we're looking for ladder fuels there is tall brush, or brush underneath exiting trees that would allow a fire to climb up into the trees, adjacent to the home or near that home." Benton says owners of homes that are on land protected by ODF have received certification packets to help them comply with the Oregon Forestland Urban Interface Fire Protection Act. You can always request your local fire department, or Department of Forestry Fire specialist to inspect your property and advise you on fuels reduction.
