Mt. Hood National Forest Plans October Burns

The Barlow and Hood River Ranger Districts of the Mt. Hood National Forest will be conducting fall prescribed burns as early as next week and pile burning later in October.  The burns will take place in various locations throughout both districts and will occur when significant moisture is present.  Residents living on the east side of Mt. Hood can expect to see smoke in the air for a few days following ignition.  Underburning could begin as early as next week if conditions are appropriate while pile burning generally takes place after a wetting rain.  These burns are planned to help minimize the potential risk of high intensity wildfire in the affected areas by removing hazardous fuels.
