In a typical season, Central Oregon will see 450 fires and we're well on our way. We’ve seen 50 mostly small fires in the last couple weeks. Deschutes County Forester Joe Stutler wants to remind people the fire danger is high and no outdoor burning of any kind is allowed. “Things are really ready to burn, so we're asking people to be careful when smoking using equipment, no open burning. We’re simply in a mode of fighting them not lighting them now.” The risk of a fast moving fire in grass, weeds and brush is greatly increased during the dry summer months.
