The district lost 16-thousand 500 acres to fire and that's nearly double the ten year average.

 

George Ponte with the Oregon Department of Forestry says it was a tough year.

 

"You know we came into fire season under  drought conditions and those drought conditions got worse.  We're still in a drought.  We had frequent lightning in July and August.  Those were the big reasons for the tough fire season.  We also had some unfortunate human caused fires that remain under investigation."

 

Central Oregon's fire season was 134 days long, which is longer than usual, but Ponte urges people to continue to be careful.
