Public Wildfire Restrictions Eased

ROSEBURG, Ore. – The Douglas Forest Protective Association lowered the fire danger level to low Monday. Recent rain showers have reduced the threat level, but officials say the fire season remains in effect.

Officials say open fires, including campfires, warming fires, cooking fires and charcoal fires are still prohibited except in designated campgrounds. They say the use of exploding targets and tracer ammunition also remains prohibited.

The DFPA will now issue burn permits for outdoor debris burning following an onsite inspection by a forest officer. Permits will only be issued for debris piles consisting of wood materials

Permits can be obtained by calling DFPA at (541) 672-6507 to schedule an onsite inspection.
