Fire season is starting up, so people should take steps to help protect their homes and keep fires to a minimum here in Central Oregon. Kate Lighthall with Project Wildfire says the small brushfire in Terrebonne earlier this week, is a reminder fires can spread quickly. “The idea is if the fire travels from public to private land that you've given firefighters a fighting chance by breaking up that fuel bed by mowing grass to 4 inches, so flames aren't going to get that high. So firefighters can effectively suppress it.” It's recommended you keep shrubs and weeds and other combustible materials 30 feet from your home. It's also suggested you keep your gutters free from debris like pine needles and leaves.
