With overnight rains in our area, this will be our final daily fire update, though we will continue to investigate, write about, and follow the continuing story of Oregon’s worst fire season in recent history. 

Locally, the forests have reopened to logging and public use, but there are still significant restrictions in place. On Monday at 1 a.m., NW3 — the western portion of the region where most of our readers reside — will drop to “Moderate” fire danger and IFPL 2. Fire protection gates in the Tillamook State Forest will reopen that day as well.
