Fire Season Here, Caution Needed

Fire season is here in the Mid-Columbia, and that means the need for people to use caution, particularly in the wildland areas.  Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue Chief Bob Palmer points out his 110-square mile district not only deals with the urban areas of The Dalles, but also grasslands, timber, scrub oak, and the wildland-urban interface.  Palmer says Oregon Department of Forestry reports show fuel moistures in the region are well below average.  That means people need to use common sense and use caution when dealing with anything that could spark a fire.
