BEND, OR -- Additional campfire restrictions will be imposed beginning Friday on public lands managed by the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forest, Prineville BLM and the Crooked River National Grassland. The tighter restrictions are in response to continued hot and dry conditions and an increasing number of human-caused fires in Central Oregon.
Open fires, including charcoal briquette fires and portable campfires will be prohibited outside certain designated campgrounds. Click HERE

to level III.
