WALLOWA-WHITMAN NIXES CHAINSAW USE, LIMITS CAMPFIRES

People who want to cut firewood in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest will not be allowed to use chainsaws or other internal combustion engines beginning at 12:01 a.m. Thursday.

The restriction against chainsaws does not apply to forest lands in Wallowa County, where rain and cooler temperatures have kept the fire risk lower than in other parts of the forest.

The restrictions against chainsaws and certain recreational practices will remain in effect "until forest and weather conditions reduce the risk of wildfire," said Matt Reidy, fire management officer for the forest.

Recreation restrictions prohibit building a campfire or warming fire outside of developed camp sites.

Smoking outside of vehicles, buildings or developed camp sites, and driving off Forest Service roads are also prohibited.

Campfires are permitted in the Eagle Cap Wilderness.

The area where the Monument Fire has been burning in the Malheur National Forest has been closed to the public.
