July 4, 2017 Smoke Detected in Prineville

Yesterday, the Grizzly Fire, located approximately nine miles northwest of Prineville, caused some light smoke in Prineville for a few hours yesterday afternoon.  According to DEQ's  smoke monitor, PM2.5 concentrations increased to 12 - 28 ug/m3 in the afternoon, but decreased back to normal levels in the evening.   Light smoke will likely reoccur again in Prineville this afternoon, if the fire behaves as it did yesterday.   For more information about this fire, visit the Central Oregon Fire Information website at
