Fire danger is prompting fire restrictions on local forests that haven't been in effect since 2007. Spokesperson Lisa Clark says the restrictions went into effect Saturday morning, just after midnight and will probable remain in place at least for several days or weeks. Campfires and smoking are restricted in the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests, and the Crooked River National Grassland. Motorized vehicles, including ATV’s are also banned from many areas right now: "I think also the main thing; that people should know that this affects where your ATV's can go. The trails for the Bend Fort Rock and the BLM are closed. We do still allow people to use the Roseland and Millican ODOT play areas. But other than that, ATV riding is closed.” He says they are also seeing similar closures in nearby areas, so check first before you leave for an ATV or hunting trip in other parts of the state.
