Bend Fire is warning people that we're under extreme fire danger. Hot and dry weather make conditions ripe for a wildfire to take off. Susie Lovisco is the Deputy Fire Marshal with Bend Fire. “The fires under extreme conditions start quickly, spread furiously and burn intensely. They can be very serious and development will be faster than the fires developed in high danger ratings.” The fire department warns people to be extremely careful with their cigarettes; only put them in a non-combustible containers, keep lighters and matches from kids and not to burn in your backyard, it is forbidden within City limits.
