OR Fire Officials Prepare for Tough Fire Season

Wildland Firefighting

Oregon fire officials are encouraging people to help prevent fires, reports KMTR 16.

According to the Oregon Department of Forestry, nearly 70 percent of wildfires are human-caused. It’s the campfires and discarded cigarettes – that’s what they’re talking about. Will the numbers of human-caused fires go down this summer due to social distancing and the stay-at-home order? That answer is not clear yet.
