Deschutes Forest Urging Fire Safety When Outdoors

CENTRAL OREGON -- The Deschutes National Forest is concerned this could be a tough fire season if recent events are any indication. Jean Nelson-Dean at the Deschutes says in the past two weeks firefighters have already responded to 16 wildfires. She says the snowpack…which wasn’t great to begin with…is rapidly diminishing and April was a pretty dry month. Nelson-Dean urges campers to build a fire ring and keep combustibles 15 feet from the ring.
