Prescribed Burns Scheduled for Central Oregon

A prescribed burn was ignited by the U.S. Forest Service Sunday near Rimrock Trail Head, leaving a thick soup of smoke over Bend on Monday morning.
Central Oregon Daily’s Allison Roecker spoke to residents and a Forest Service official on the timing of the burn, and what to expect for the rest of the week.

If the weather permits, the Deschutes National Forest Service plans to ignite two more burns this week, one just across the highway from the Rimrock Trailhead that’s burning right now and the next one will be along the north side of Skyliners Road.
