ODF Establishing Regulated Use Closure

The Oregon Department of Forestry’s Central Oregon District, including lands it protects in Hood River and Wasco counties, will enter into a Regulated-Use Closure beginning Wednesday in an effort to prevent fires in dry wildland fuels.  Open fires are prohibited except in designated areas, chainsaw use and the mowing of dried grass with power driven equipment is prohibited from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m., use of motor vehicles is prohibited except on improved roads or by landowners and their employees, smoking is prohibited while traveling except in vehicles on improved roads, and the use of fireworks and blasting is prohibited.  So far ODF’s Central Oregon District has seen 35 fires, 10 started by lightning and 25 human caused, burning a total of 33 acres.  Recent precipitation has helped keep fires small, but the weather is transitioning into warm and dry summer conditions/  For additional information go to ODFcentraloregon.com.
