For those who work in the Tillamook State Forest and surrounding forests protected by the Oregon Department of Forestry, logging and other commercial activities will need to shift certain activities out of the hottest parts of the day as much of the region moves to Industrial Fire Precaution Level 3 beginning Thursday morning. 

According to ODF’s Forest Grove District Forester Mike Cafferata, weather zones NW-2 and NW-3 will move to IFPL 3 beginning 1 a.m. Thursday,  September 3, while the more coastal NW-1 will move to IFPL 2 at the same time. 

For the general public, NW-1 will move to “High” fire danger . . .
