More Prescribed Burns Planned for Central Oregon

Firefighters will be igniting a prescribed burn across Cascade Lakes Highway from the burn that occurred on Sunday at the Rimrock Trailhead west of Bend, so you can expect to see smoke in the area throughout the day on Tuesday.
There will also be a prescribed burn in the Sisters Ranger District about 1 1/2 miles south of Camp Sherman Store and 4 miles north of Black Butte Ranch. No road closures are expected with that burn.
On Wednesday, firefighters have scheduled a burn in Shevlin Park, about 1/2 mile north of Skyliners Road on Bend Park and Recreation District property.
For all prescribed fires, signs will be posted on significant nearby Forest roads and state highways that could be impacted.
Motorists are encouraged to turn on their headlights and slow down while traveling through smoky areas.
