As of midnight, people working in the local forests are restricted from using certain equipment during the heat of the day. Lisa Clark, spokesperson with the Central Oregon Fire Management Service says we are now under an industrial fire precaution level two. "And that applies to our permitted commercial and industrial operations that happen on our range lands and in our forests. So people cutting wood, doing timber sales, and of the work that basically requires equipment with sparks." Clark says level two is also called a partial "hoot owl" and they can only operate the equipment between 8 p.m. and 1 p.m. She says the land is just too dry and even a tiny spark, in the right conditions, can instigate a wildfire. She says if you are caught using power saws, cable yarding, welding or cutting metal, you will get fined.
