Because of continued hot temperatures, lack of moisture and extreme fire danger, the Malheur National Forest’s Emigrant Creek Ranger District officials have implemented Phase C of public use restrictions. Campfires are prohibited; only liquid and bottle (propane) gas stoves are allowed. No internal combustion engine operation, including chainsaws, is allowed, except for motorized vehicles. Electrical generators must be operated in the center of an area at least 10 feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of all flammable material or fully contained within a pickup truck bed that is empty of all flammable material. No off-road/off-trail vehicle travel or travel on roads not cleared of standing grass or other flammable material is allowed. Smoking is allowed only in enclosed vehicles and buildings, developed recreation sites or in cleared areas. To report a wildfire, call 911. For more information, visit fs.usda.gov/malheur.
