Report: Over Half of Last Weekend's Fires Human Caused, Greater Caution Urged

By Jim McCoy Tue 7th May NewsfireKeep Oregon Greensafety precautions
Fire officials are urging greater care by rural landowners with burn piles. Of the 65 Oregon wildfires that burned over the weekend, 36 were human caused. Some lands have already been closed to burning. Keep a charged hose ready that reaches to and all the way around the fire, never leave a fire unattended, keep fires small, and the perimeter around the fire wet and soak the area once you’re finished burning. Remember that burning trash and lumber is prohibited.
