  • Wildfire prevention: It's still fire season out there

    This is a photo of Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber.Scattered lightning and thunderstorms.  "Holdover" fires fropm previous lightning and thunderstorms.  Storm-affected downed trees damaging power lines.  Vehicles. These are just a small handful of recent wildfire causes across Oregon the past few days in mid-August. There has been some recent cooling - and even some rain - but that doesn't mean fire season is over; during many years, August can be when fire season really begins.  The Oregon Department of Forestry asks all Oregonians and visitors who are working and recreating in Oregon's forests to do all they can to help prevent human-caused wildfires.
