Herald staff reports
Tree farm properties owned by Olympic Resource Management in Kitsap, Mason and Jefferson counties will be closed temporarily to public access because of dry weather and increased fire danger, the Poulsbo-based company announced.
As of Monday, the company's 71,000 acres of timberland, typically open for public recreation, will be closed until significant rainfall lifts the danger of fire, a news release said.
The closure includes the company's timberlands near the town of Port Gamble, an area that is popular with hikers, mountain bikers and hunters.
The closure follows a Aug. 17 fire on the company's property near the town of Brinnon. The fire was quickly contained and extinguished by fire crews. The cause of the fire has not been determined.
