Governor Kitzhaber statement on wildfires in Southeastern Oregon

(Portland, OR) — Governor Kitzhaber released the following statement on the wildfires in Southeastern Oregon:
 
“This year's wildfire season has now hit our state, with some of the nation's largest fires affecting people, wild animals and livestock, and land in southeastern Oregon, including the communities of Frenchglen, Rome and Jordan Valley and other areas of Harney and Malheur counties. I want to thank everyone responding to the fires, including local citizens and the BLM for their firefighting efforts and the relief organizations for their community response and aid efforts. I am deeply concerned with both the immediate impacts of the fire and with the long-term effects on this part of Oregon.”
