RED Fire Restrictions In Place For Western Lane County
As of midnight Tuesday western Lane County is in “extreme” (RED) for public use fire restrictions.
The Oregon Department of Forestry announced the change citing
triple digit high temperatures and low humidity forecast this week.
The “extreme” restrictions mean campfires are prohibited, as well as the use of gas or diesel powered equipment, except for mowing green grass in a well-irrigated yard.
Industrial fire precaution levels are at 3.
