November 23, 2016

The Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) plans a slash burn starting Wednesday, November 23 east of Depoe Bay. The fire may be visible from Highway 101.

Winds are expected from the southwest and should blow the smoke away from town.

Under the Oregon Smoke Management Plan, ODF meteorologists regulate the number and size of burns, based on weather and wind conditions, to minimize smoke intrusion into populated areas.

The Oregon Health Authority recommends that individuals with asthma, other lung disease, or heart disease, may be more sensitive to health effects from smoke and should reduce the amount of time spent outdoors or stay inside.

Prescribed forest burning is a valuable tool to prepare a logged site for replanting of trees. And by reducing excess fuels, it also lowers the risk of wildfires. Learn more at http://www.oregon.gov/ODF/Pages/index.aspx
