In an effort to curb wildfires, the Oregon Department of Forestry announced restrictions for private and state lands effective on Monday.

Along with a ban on off-road driving, campfires are now restricted to only designated campgrounds. There is no smoking allowed outside of buildings or vehicles to go along with an existing ban on debris burning that started in May.

Chainsaw use is prohibited in the afternoon or evening.
