Curvinq Canal by Erich Heckel, 1915 From page 2 Ranger District, with ODF firefighters from the Sweet Home Unit, put out a human-caused quarter-acre fire on Sept. 26 near the Rooster Rock trailhead in the Menagerie Wilderness north of Highway 20. "The fire was creeping and smouldering in a pretty steep and rocky area," U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Jennifer Velez said. She said rappellers dropped down on Wednesday evening and by Thursday morning containment lines had been established around the blaze. "We want to remind people that fire season is not over," she said. Even though the calendar says summer has passed, the ban on backyard debris burning that began June 15 remains in effect till further notice. The annual bum ban continues with the provision "until further notice" due to the current fire danger. "The weather patterns need to change to a winter weather model before open outdoor burning can be done safely," said the Oregon Department of Forestry's Allison Blair. Scarcity of firefighting resources also figured into the decision to extend the ban this year. With several large fires burning throughout the West, firefighting resources continue to be stretched thin. Rural fire agencies and the Oregon Department of Forestry have the authority to enforce and regulate the burn ban. Under Oregon Revised statute Chapter 477, the department may issue citations for violation of the burning restrictions. Along with the burn ban, local forests will return to industrial precaution level III on Wednesday, Pettinger said. They were reduced to level II last week: but the forecast From page 2 sister, Lawanda Anthony. A private service will be held. Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements.

Paid Obituary shows a big east wind event in the middle to the end of this week. "Our fire season just keeps hanging on," Pettinger said. "Right now, we are seeing no rain in the forecast." Most industrial land owners, including Cascade Timber Consulting, Weyerhaeuser and others, have closed their grounds too, Pettinger said. "They're a little on edge." Fire danger remains "high," and regulated use, banning campfires, except in designated campgrounds, remains in effect. "For us to get out is going to require a larger rain event," Pettinger said. The end of fire season is going to depend on the weather, and dry east winds can keep it going. It'll take a while for the bigger fuels to recover moisture. There have been years where firefighters have been combating fires as late as Halloween, he said. On a related note, Velez said prescribed bums are planned for the Sweet Home Ranger District later in the fall, when officials determine that conditions are favorable for such activity. Planned bums include the following: Approximately 124 acres on Browder Ridge that many require closure of some roads and Browder Ridge and Gate Creek trails; Approximately 150 acres on Echo Mountain that may also require some road and trail closures; and Approximately 30 acres in the Lodgepole Flats area, with possible road and trail closures.
