A small wildfire burning in the Tillamook State Forest is under investigation by authorities who believe it may have been caused by fireworks.

Fireworks are not permitted on state forestland, and the region entered fire season on June 22.

In a phone call with this publication, Oregon Department of Forestry Forest Grove District Forester Mike Cafferata said that the outlook on the fire, a series of blazes scattered over six acres, was good.
