SALEM, Ore. — Due to extreme heat and dry conditions, all western Oregon Department of Forestry districts in Oregon have raised their fire danger level to high.

Counties experiencing high fire danger include Benton, Clackamas, Columbia, Jackson, Josephine, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, Multnomah, Polk, Washington, and Yamhill.

Coastal counties are experiencing moderate fire danger. These counties include Clatsop, Coos, Curry, and Tillamook.

“Fighting fires in hot and dry conditions is extremely taxing on those who are trained to protect our lands from fire,” said Unit Forester Chet Behling with ODF’s Western Lane District. “We are asking that our public remain mindful of this as they conduct activities throughout the coming days.”

Various potential fire-starting activities are tightly restricted during periods of declared high fire danger.
