Change in fire danger adjective classification for Emigrant Creek Ranger District

Harney County-Effective Thursday, 6/30/2022, Burns Interagency Fire Zone will be moving to a Fire Danger Rating of High.  There will be no public use restrictions or IFPL changes at this time.  This change effects Burns District BLM and the Southern portion of the Malheur National Forest managed by Emigrant Creek Ranger District. 

 Fire Danger Level: HIGH

All fine dead fuels ignite readily, and fires start easily from most causes. Unattended brush and campfires are likely to escape. Fires spread rapidly and short distance spotting is common. High intensity burning may develop on slopes, or in concentrations of fine fuel. Fires may become serious and their control difficult, unless they are hit hard and fast while small.
