Effective now, Public Use Restrictions are in place for all Central Oregon forests and BLM lands. Kassidy Kerns at the Deschutes Forest says no open fires, including wood stoves and charcoal briquette fires, except in designated campgrounds. She says make sure you have water and a shovel to put out your campfire. Kerns also reminds everyone fireworks are always illegal on all federal forest lands as are explosive targets like Tannerite. She says in fact you can’t even have those things in your car or possession so leave them at home.
