clackams county fire (BCF) and bond fire (BF) were the most likely causes of a bond-related fire in Oregon, according to the National Capital Fire Marshal’s Office (NCFMO).
The agency, in its latest annual fire statistics, said on Monday that the Bond Fire had a 50% likelihood of starting a fire.
A bond collapse is the loss of money from a bond sale, and can occur due to a loss of principal or the failure to pay back the money.
Bond sales, in which the borrower agrees to pay interest on the bonds, can also trigger bond defaults.
The NCFMO said on Tuesday that the bond market had cooled slightly from last year.
However, it cautioned against making any changes to the way the agency handles bond-bond transactions, saying that the risk of a new bond market is still very low.
Clackamas County Fire and Bond Fire have caused more than 1,300 fires in the state in the past two years, the most in the entire state.
Last year, the bond fire caused a fire at the Pacific Crest Trail National Recreation Area (CPTNRA) in northern Oregon, which caused more damage than any other fire on the National Forest System’s (NFS) property.
In July, Clackams County Sheriff Scott Gentry told reporters that a “small fire” had broken out in the North Clackaman National Forest, near the Columbia River Gorge.
He said the blaze was under control.
In February, a wildfire burned about 3,000 acres in the town of Eufaula, Oregon.
That blaze was later deemed an arson.
