DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- With hunting season starting up this weekend, officials want to remind everyone heading into the wilderness to be mindful of wildfires.
Even though the weather has cooled down a bit, local fire managers say that Douglas County is still at risk for wildfires.
Officials are asking those heading outdoors to do their best to prevent forest fires.
To make sure you're not the cause of a big blaze, officials are asking people to only drive on roads, as driving over grass can start a fire.
Only light a campfire in approved areas like campsites and keep your cigarettes in your car. Smoking is only allowed in vehicles.
About 2/3 of all Oregon wildfires are caused by people.
