BLM Will Drop Its Fire Restrictions Starting on Friday

The Prineville District BLM, the Deschutes National Forest and Ochoco National Forest including the Crooked River National Grassland will remove campfire restrictions to level one.


That means that all public use restrictions across central Oregon will be lifted except in portions of the John Day River and portions of the Lower Deschutes, and White and Crooked Rivers until October 15th.


This means that commercial operators and woodcutters can use chainsaws in the forest at any time in designated areas.


The BLM does remind the public to make sure campfires are "dead out" before leaving them unattended.
