Fire season in the Tillamook State Forest and surrounding areas is over.
The Oregon Department of Forestry said that lands protected by their agency in the Northwest Oregon Forest Protective Association were no longer under fire season or regulated use as of 9 a.m. Monday.
"Slash burning requires a burn permit to manage air quality," ODF officials said in an email, and encouraged those planning slash burns to contact their local ODF office for permits.
Locally, fire season began July 11.
"It was a busy and late season. Thanks to the many partners that helped on these fires," said ODF Forest Grove District Forester Mike Cafferata in an email.
