Home arrow News arrow Local News arrow RISJ OF FIRE BRINGS MORE RESTRICTIONS


The high risk of fire has brought restrictions to private lands governed by the Oregon Department of Forestry.

Any lands that are adjacent to forest lands in Northeast Oregon are restricted until the risk of fire is reduced.

The restrictions, which also apply to some state parks, include:

• No fires except in fire pits at designated recreation sites.

• No smoking outside enclosed vehicles, buildings or developed recreation sites.

• No travel off developed roads or trails for all vehicles, including ATVs and motorcycles.

• No fireworks.

Anyone traveling off state or county roads must carry a shovel, ax and a gallon of water or a 2.5-pound fire extinguisher.

The restrictions prohibit the mowing or cutting of dried or cured grass between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., except for commercial or agricultural harvest. Non-industrial chainsaw cutting and metal grinding are also forbidden.

The restrictions are in place in Union, Wallowa, Baker and Umatilla counties.

The Forest Service has similar restrictions in place, and Union County has set its annual ban on outdoor burning, except for regulated agricultural fires.
