CENTRAL OREGON -- It’s that time of year when state and federal land management agencies begin restrictions designed to prevent wild fires. The U-S Forest Service and the BLM in Central Oregon are moving to Industrial Fire Protection Level 2 tomorrow, Tuesday. Kassidy Kern at the Deschutes National Forest says it’s due to warm, dry weather. She says last week’s Finley and Paulina Lake fires are believed human-caused. Kern says firewood cutters can only use saws from 8pm to 1pm. She says make sure there are spark arrestors on all motorized equipment. Kern also reminds everyone not to park on dry vegetation because the underside of cars and recreation vehicles can get hot enough to ignite fires.
