Closures of Bear Camp Road and Burnt Ridge Road Extended Due to Continued Fire Danger
Southern OR—Due to continued fire danger and fire traffic associated with the Big Windy Complex, the Bear Camp and Burnt Ridge Roads will remain closed to public use through September 30, 2013:
The Bear Camp Road (FS Road 2300), and all spur roads that lead off it, remains closed from the Forest boundary to its terminus at the junction with Forest Service Road 3300 (Agness Road).
Burnt Ridge Road (FS Road 2308) remains closed from the junction with FS Road 2300 to the junction with FS Road 3300 (Agness Road).
“We regret limiting public access to the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest and the Rogue River. However, we must keep public health and safety our priority during this very active fire season. Although the fire activity may be minimal after rain, there is still plenty of potential for active fire behavior as soon as temperatures rise and weather conditions change,” said Deputy Forest Supervisor Tracy Tophooven.
