Effective Friday, Aug. 8, all property of Rainier Timber Co. (managed by The Campbell Group), SDS Lumber, Broughton Lumber, Kreps family and Kreps Ranch in Washington and Oregon are closed to all public entry due to extreme fire danger. This includes property in Klickitat, Yakima, Skamania, Hood River, and Wasco counties.
All gates will remain locked and signs will be posted at entry points. It is expected that the remainder of the summer will remain hot and dry, and the closure will remain in effect until substantial rains occur.
Public cooperation during past closures has been very good, but as a precaution security patrols will be increased during these extreme conditions.
