|ODF engines respond to a 10+ acre fire caused by |
an escaped debris burn outside of Molalla.
With the increase in temperatures, dry fuels, and unpredictable wind and weather conditions, many of these burns have escaped and resulted in acres and structures lost. With multiple agencies responding, costs accumulate quickly and often fall to the landowner or individual found to be responsible for the fire.
These fires are completely preventable and ODF is here to help. For those looking to burn their debris piles, ODF local offices are a phone call away. Another option is the interactive ODF Fire Restrictions Map where users simply click on their location to receive current local fire restrictions.
Please check your local restrictions before you burn - these fires are preventable!
