DescriptionFollowing two successive fire seasons of record breaking severity, the 1953 season set new records for low fire danger in western Oregon and Washington. The low danger is reflected in the fire recordthe U. S. Forest Service and forestry offices of both States all report the lowest acreage burned since fire records have been kept. A cool, wet spring, above normal relative humidities during the summer, general rains in late August, and recurring fall rains were largely responsible. October weather was the most favorable for burning logging slash of any fall period in recent years.
