HARNEY COUNTY (Released by the Burns Interagency Fire Zone)-Major change since July 3: NO OPEN FIRES on public lands managed by the BLM Burns District or U.S. Forest Service’s Emigrant Creek Range District of the Malheur National Forest. Campfires are ONLY allowed in existing fire rings at the following developed campgrounds: Buck Spring, Delintment, Emigrant, Falls, Idlewild, Joaquin Miller, Rock Springs, Tip Top, Jackman Park, and Fish Lake.

HAVE YOU NOTICED IT’S HOT AND DRY OUT THERE? Oh, and if you’ve been hiding under a rock, it’s also GENERALLY A BIT WINDY… all top conditions for easily started and fast-growing wildfires!

Practice extreme caution when outdoors this summer. If a fire starts right now, we could be in for a serious doozy.
