Moderate Fire Danger

Cooler, wet weather has allowed the Douglas Forest Protective Association to drop the fire danger to Moderate effective immediately throughout the Douglas District. The Industrial Fire Precaution Level will remain at IFPL III. The change in fire danger is expected to be short-lived as warm and dry conditions are forecasted to return to the area by the weekend.

Under DFPA’s Public Use Restrictions, the following activities are prohibited between the hours of 1:00 PM and 8:00 PM during a Moderate fire danger rating:

  • The cutting, trimming or mowing of dried or cured grass. This restriction does not apply to the mowing of green lawns or for the commercial culture and harvest of agricultural crops.

  • The cutting, grinding or welding of metal for non-industrial purposes.

  • The use of power saws for non-industrial purposes.

  • Any non-industrial improvement or development taking place on private property that utilizes power driven machinery not specifically mentioned in the Public Use Restrictions.

All other restrictions listed under DFPA’s Public Use Restrictions remain in effect and unchanged. A complete list of DFPA’s Public Use Restrictions can be found online at or by calling DFPA’s 24 hour information line at 541-672-0379. Residents are reminded that additional restrictions or closures may be in place through private industrial landowners or public land management agency on the lands they own or manage.
