Deschutes County Lifts Its Fire Restrictions Earlier Than Planned

Earlier this summer, the Deschutes County Commissioners imposed fire use restrictions on unprotected wild lands within Deschutes County.


They did it because central Oregon had a below average snow pack and the threat for wild land fires was high.  And of course we had the Two Bulls fire in June that burned more than six thousand acres.


But current weather patterns have decreased and the threat is much less, so the commissioners rescinded the resolution originally set to expire on October 15th.
