CAMPFIRE BAN LIFTED IN TILLAMOOK

News Release from Oregon Dept. of Forestry – Posted on FlashAlert: August 28th, 2015 1:48 PM
Campfires are again allowed effective Saturday, August 29, on Tillamook State Forest, Bureau of Land Management, and Tillamook County Parks in designated campgrounds and sites only.

Last week, due to high fire danger and extreme dry weather, a ban on campfires was put in place. The weather pattern has shifted to rain starting Friday and will likely continue into Monday.

Regulated Use on forestland is still in place. This means NO:
* Campfires outside of designated campgrounds and sites
* Charcoal briquettes
* Fireworks
* Sky Lanterns
* Exploding Targets
* Smoking except in closed vehicles or on improved roads

Public is still required to carry a shovel and 1 gallon of water or 2 ?1/2 lb extinguisher when traveling in the forest.

A burn ban still applies to burn barrels and debris piles.

Oregon State Parks statewide campfire ban is still in effect.
