Fire officials say they are seeing a high number of human caused wildfires already this season. Lisa Clark with the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch says they want to remind people even though its cool, conditions are still dry. “We've had several human caused fires lately. They’re really small fires, small acreage, but we've had a couple a day and that's a significant increase, so we want to get the word out for people to be cautious.   In a typical year, the area sees about 140 human-caused wildfires.” In the last two weeks, we've had a fifth of that number.
