Campfire ban now on all private lands in C.O.

With a campfire ban now in place on all public lands in Central Oregon, the Central Oregon Fire Chiefs Association announced there will also be a ban of all campfires and recreational fires on all private lands in Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook counties. The increased threat of fire danger, thinly stretched resources in the region and more people coming to watch the eclipse led the chiefs to make this decision.
