With increased fire activity and an influx of visitors coming to Central Oregon for the solar eclipse, the Central Oregon Fire Chiefs Association announced Thursday it will be banning recreational fires and campfires on private lands within all the fire districts in the tri-county region in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties.
As a reminder campfires and charcoal BBQ’s/Grills are never allowed at Black Butte Ranch. This is consistent with campfire restrictions on public lands taking effect at the same time. And like that action, portable cooking stoves or lanterns using liquefied or bottled fuel may be used in all areas.
Note: Usage of a Traeger type pellet BBQ in the home environment is allowed.
