All Prescribed Burns

Prescribed fire (controlled burn) is used to reduce the risk of large catastrophic wildfires and increase public and firefighter safety, as well as meet a variety of resource management objectives. This planned ignition allows agencies to reduce hazardous fuels and restore habitat and ecosystems. Three general types of prescribed fire are pile burning, understory/under burning, and broadcast burning. Any controlled burning must first get clearance from smoke management officials at the Oregon Department of Forestry or the Washington Department of Natural Resources.
