Fire warning level raised, stronger restrictions in county parks and forests

Earlier today, the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) – Molalla Unit issued a Level 3 Fire Warning for the North Cascade District.

The district covers the majority of Clackamas County east of I-5/I-205 and all county parks and forestland properties. This includes the three county parks that feature recreational vehicle (RV) camping sites – Barton Park, Feyrer Park and Metzler Park.

Heightened restrictions include:

The expected high temperatures and low humidity, along with windy and extremely dry conditions, will likely keep the level in place through Labor Day weekend.

Clackamas County parks and forest staff will maintain direct communication with ODF during these high and extreme fire levels.

For more information, members of the media or public may contact Clackamas County Public Affairs Manager Tim Heider at 503-742-5911 or theider@clackamas.us.
