The 2022 Fire Season will officially end for Klamath and Lake counties. Fire management personnel from the Oregon Department of Forestry, Klamath-Lake District, in cooperation with other local fire agencies and departments will declare the termination of the 2022 fire season as of Oct. 26.  “Even though we have lifted fire season, it does not mean that people should be any less careful; they are still responsible for any fire that gets out of control and spreads. Debris Burning should be attended at all times, done only during daylight hours, in cleared areas, in ‘no wind’ conditions, and meeting Air Quality guidelines,” said Randall Baley, Protection Unit Forester. …During the 2022 season… 62 fires that burned approximately 1,230 acres. The total number of fires falls well below the 10-year average… Logging operation requirements have also been lifted, including watchman services and fire equipment on site, in effect on private, county, and state lands.
