Our forests, farmlands and neighborhoods are extremely dry in Central Oregon, and the Deschutes County Sheriff says we need to be especially vigilant. Sheriff Larry Blanton says if you notice careless or suspicious behavior; make sure you report it quickly: “It’s important as people recreate, drive on the back roads, in the areas that they are vigilant. Jot down suspicious license plates.  That we help the forest service to investigate all fires. It’s important as people recreate, drive on the back roads, sometimes they can see a suspicious car today and noon and then tomorrow a fire breaks out ;it just depends because there are those that are accidentally or intentional set fire."  Several recent fires in Oregon were human caused. For example: the one near Madras that burned 1000 acres started when people were using a burn barrel.
