|Prescribed burn set along Three Creek Road|
|Fuels specialists with the Sisters Ranger District on the Deschutes National Forest plan to do a prescribed burn across a 180-acre project area south of Sisters adjacent to Forest Road 16 (also known as Three Creek Lake Road) .|
The project area is known as "SAFR" or the "Sisters Area Fuels Reduction" project.
The goal of the SAFR project is to reduce the amount of forest fuels to minimize the potential for future high intensity wildfires and increase defensible space, which will improve public safety during wildfires.
No major road closures are anticipated with these projects. The public will probably see smoke.
The public is encouraged to close their windows at night and if smoke is on the roadway, turn on headlights and slow down while traveling through smoky areas.
