CENTRAL OREGON -- The Deschutes National Forest is raising the Industrial Fire Protection Level (IFPL) tomorrow, Friday, to Level 2, Partial Hoot Owl. The change is due to drying fuels and greater risk of wildfire. Level 2 primarily affects commercial timber cutters. However firewood cutters can not use a chainsaw on the national forest between 1 pm and 8pm every day. Under the Partial Hoot Owl designation power saws except at logging sites…cable yarding…blasting and…welding or cutting metal is only allowed from 8pm to 1pm.
