The contained hot and dry weather prompts a reminder from the Oregon Department of Forestry that campfires are prohibited on most of the 16 million acres of private, county, state and Bureau of Land Management forest lands. 

 

Tom Fields with the Oregon Department of Forestry says conditions are just too dangerous.  “We’re seeing some conditions that we haven't seen all summer, with the continued dry, hot weather that we've had. And we have seen also, several campfires that have been left unattended in some precarious area that could actually turn into large wildfires."

 

Fields says there are a few areas that will allow a campfire; but you need to check with the campgrounds.

 

They have had the "regulated use closure" in affect for most of the fire season; and the restriction will probably stay in effect through the end of the fire season, or the first good rain.
