CLACKAMAS COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

The Oregon Department of Forestry issued a campfire restriction Tuesday throughout the majority of Clackamas County.

A Level 2 Fire Warning was issued for the North Cascade District, which covers the majority of Clackamas County east of I-5 and I-205.

This includes all county parks and camping sites.

ODF said campfires must be contained within metal fire rings and flames cannot be more than 12 inches in height.

The department added that the heat and wind expected later in the week is likely to bring a Level 3 warning to the county.
