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.

Sisters Residents to Hold Wildfire Worker Thank You Event

From Central Oregon to California, firefighters have been putting their lives on the line to battle wildfires all summer and into the fall. Some Central Oregonians wanted to come up with a way to thank all of those firefighters, and, as Anyssa Bohanan reports, those efforts are coming together this Sunday.

If you’d like to attend, the event goes from 1:30pm to 3:00pm on Sunday at the Village Green Park in Sisters.
