It’s been a quiet fire season so far, but conditions are expected to change. Oregon Department of Forestry spokesperson Phil Hunter says warmer weather is expected inland later this week and with it will come stepped up fire safety rules. Effective Friday “regulated use closure” will be implemented on public lands, as well as private lands protected by Western Lane Forestry. That means restrictions on smoking, campfires and industrial uses such as mowing and chainsaws. Specific questions about what is and is not allowed should be directed to the Western Lane District office in Veneta at 541-935-2283.
