Subject to conditions, USDA Forest Service has announced they will conduct a controlled burn across the Columbia River from Mosier today.
The proposed fire is located on Courtney Road, just west of the Syncline and directly across the River from the City of Mosier.
If the burn proceeds, it should be much like last year’s controlled burn near Tom McCall Point. Expect considerable smoke and open flame visible from much of the Mosier area. The same teams have an excellent track record for safety and caution.
BURN RESTRICTIONS REMAIN IN EFFECT IN HOOD RIVER AND WASCO COUNTIES.
OUTDOOR BURNING IS FORBIDDEN UNTIL OREGON DEPARTMENT OF FORESTRY LIFTS THE SEASONAL BURN BAN.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Fire Chief at 541-478-3333.
