Central Oregon fire season ends, Forestry Department announces

Wildfire Smoke

Due to cooler temperatures and significant rainfall, the fire season ended Monday for the Oregon Department of Forestry’s Central Oregon District, ODF announced. 

The season started on June 9 and lasted 122 days.

The end of fire season applies to all ODF-protected lands in the Central Oregon District.  But ODF says Oregonians should still check local fire districts to obtain any necessary permits before debris burning. Wasco County’s burn ban is in effect until October 16. 

“We saw a lot of successes this season thanks to the hard work of our firefighters, the strong relationships with our partners, early detection efforts and quick initial attack.” Rob Pentzer, Central Oregon District Forester, said in a statement. “And thank you to the Oregonians who took that extra minute of thought to prevent wildfires. It may seem small, but it helped to stave off firefighter fatigue and potentially stop the next large wildfire.”
