LA PINE, OR -- More prescribed burns are planned for Central Oregon, this week. If conditions allow, the Deschutes National Forest will ignite 300 acres Monday, and another 743 acres on Tuesday, near Hole in the Ground, 22 miles southeast of La Pine. The operations will cause smoke that may be visible from the Fort Rock area. 

 

Also Tuesday, the Ochoco National Forest expects to burn the 409-acre "Lunch 1" unit, east of the Highway 26-Country Road 23 junction, two miles up Duncan Creek Road. Fire crews plan to burn the "slash" leftover from a thinning operation. 

 

Later this week, crews plan to ignite the "Canyon 20" unit, which is 371 acres, a half mile west of Walton Lake. That operation will likely occur Thursday. 

 

All operations are weather permitting.
