We can expect an earlier than normal fire season this year - and because of the extremely dry conditions, Jean Nelson-Dean with the Deschutes National Forest says it'll start this month (June) instead of next and will be more intense sooner than August or September.  She says lightening could spark wildfires even more easily than last year in the dry brush.  Some safety tips she's passing on - douse your campfire three or four times with water to be sure it's completely out, don't park on dried out grass to prevent the heat in your undercarriage from igniting dry brush, and make sure your trailer chains aren't dragging on the roadway to prevent sparks.
