Fire Area Emergency Closures
WATSON CREEK FIRE CLOSURE LIFTED
Thursday, November 1st, 2018, 1:59:40 PM PDT
Lakeview, Oregon - The Watson Creek Fire emergency closure was lifted November 1, 2018. The area on the Paisley Ranger District of the Fremont-Winema National Forest is now completely open to the public, including recreation areas.
The public is asked to be aware that there are hazards in recently burned areas, including standing snags and unstable soils. As storms and wet weather increase during the fall and winter, there is increased risk of falling trees within the burn area.
"We appreciate the public's cooperation in observing the Closure Order over the past several months - including during hunting season - and are happy to restore full access earlier than anticipated," said Fremont-Winema National Forest Supervisor Barry Imler.
Fire Restrictions in South Central Oregon lifted at midnight
Monday, October 1st, 2018, 3:20:42 PM PDT
Lakeview, Oregon - The South Central Oregon Fire Management Partnership (SCOFMP) will be lifting all Public Use Restrictions and the Klamath-Lake District Oregon Department of Forestry will also be terminating their Regulated Use Closures as of midnight October 1st, 2018.
SCOFMP managers will be dropping the Adjective Class to "Moderate" fire danger and reducing the Industrial Fire Precaution Level (IFPL) to I for the Fremont-Winmena National Forest, Lakeview District Bureau of Land Management, Sheldon-Hart Mountain NWR Complex, and the Klamath-Lake District Oregon Department of Forestry lands at the same time.
The decision to transition to IFPL I and lift all Public Use Restrictions and Regulated Use Closures was made based on current temperatures, relative humidity, fuel moisture levels, and projected weather conditions over the coming weeks. The public is reminded that we are still in fire season. Conditions will continue to be extremely dry until there is significant precipitation. Please continue to be vigilant and use caution when recreating on public and private lands.
The Fire Area Emergency Closure Order Number 06-02-03-18-01-04 for the Watson Creek Fire on the Fremont-Winema National Forest remains in effect at this time. Get the most recent updates online on Facebook at facebookcom/SCOFMPFireInfo and on Twitter at @SCOFMPFireInfo.
