2017 Fire Season
Mowing dry grass, chainsaw use, and cutting/ grinding/ welding of metal will be allowed all day.
Fuels do not ignite readily from small firebrands, although a more intense heat source, such as lightning, may start many fires in duff or punky wood. Fires in open cured grassland may burn freely a few hours after rain, but woods fires spread slowly by creeping or smoldering, and burn in irregular fingers. There is little danger of spotting. The color code is green.
Effective September 19, 2017 (DFPA)
Additional rainfall has allowed the Douglas Forest Protective Association to adjust the Industrial Fire Precaution Level and fire danger rating on the Douglas District, however, fire season remains in effect. DFPA has moved to Industrial Fire Precaution Level 1 with a fire danger rating of Low, effective September 19th at 10:00 am. DFPA’s Public Use Restrictions will remain in place. During low fire danger, there are no time restrictions on the mowing of dead grass, non-industrial chainsaw use or the cutting, grinding or welding of metal. Backyard debris burning, including the use of burn barrels, remains prohibited.
For more information, go to DFPA
Examples of outdoor or open burning include: using a burn barrel, burning yard debris, burning construction or demolition debris, burning in incinerators that do not meet emission limits and burning stumps to clear land.
