Prescribed burn set for Tuesday near Sisters

Fire management personnel on the Sisters Ranger District will be conducting a 204-acre prescribed burn on Tuesday October 10. The unit is located west of North Pine Street (2058 Rd), south of Indian Ford Creek Road (1102), and north of the 800 Road.

People are asked to avoid driving the north end of Pine Street on Tuesday if possible. Smoke will be visible for days following the burn, from Sisters and surrounding communities.

Patrols will be conducted in the burn area until the unit is declared out.

The purpose of the prescribed burn is to apply fire to reduce fuel loads, mimic historically frequent/low-intensity fires, and to increase hardwood canopy cover along the riparian corridor on the south side of Indian Ford Creek, the ranger district reports.
