Wallowa-Whitman tightens fire restrictions

Chain saws for firewood cutting prohibited; campfires restricted 


Due to persistent hot, dry weather and increasing fire danger, starting tonight at midnight, campfires on the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest will be allowed only in designated campgrounds and recreation sites, and using chain saws for firewood cutting will be prohibited.
 
Campfires are still allowed, however, in the following wilderness areas: Eagle Cap, North Fork John Day, Monument Rock and Hells Canyon.
 
Year-round restrictions on campfires — for instance, they're not allowed within 1/4-mile of some lakes in the Eagle Cap — remain in effect. 
  
No off-road travel on motor vehicles is allowed, including on roads blocked by a gate, barricade, log, boulders or earthern berm.
 
A full list of of restrictions is available at: www.fs.usda.gov/wallowa-whitman and also by toll-free phone call at 541-523-1234.
