Wallowa-Whitman cancels public use restrictions

With the arrival of wetter, much cooler weather, the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest will soon cancel the restrictions on campfires, chain saw use and other activities that had been in place for more than a month.

The public use restrictions end at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18.

"I would like to remind the public that although cooler temperatures and recent rain have reduced the need for public use restrictions, we are still in fire season," Bret Ruby, the Wallowa-Whitman's fire management officer, said in a press release.

"Fires should be built in a fire ring and should never be left unattended," Ruby said. "Extinguish campfires by adding water and stirring the coals until the fire is completely out."

Fire restrictions within one-quarter mile of the Snake River, in the Eagle Cap Wilderness and along the Grande Ronde River remain in place.

To report a wildfire, call 9-1-1.
