DFPA News Releases

FIRE SEASON COMES TO AN END

 

Fire officials with the Douglas Forest Protective Association will officially end fire season on the Douglas District Monday, October 26 at 12:00 a.m.  The end of fire season is a result of rainfall and a cooler temperatures returning to the Umpqua Valley.

 

With the end of fire season, Industrial Fire Restrictions and Public Use Closures on DFPA protected land will no longer be in effect.  Backyard debris burning outside of incorporated cities will be allowed without a permit from DFPA, however residents should contact their local fire department before conducting any burning as fire restrictions vary between local fire districts. 

 

Fire officials advise residents to exercise caution when burning or using fire in the woods. This time of year, several days of sunshine and dry weather can create a fire risk even if a week or more of rainy, cool conditions precedes them. When burning yard debris, make sure to have an adequate fire trail around the pile or incinerator and never leave the burn unattended.  Should a fire escape, the property owner may be financially responsible for damages and fire suppression costs.

 

The only type of burning requiring a permit is for logging slash and heavy debris disposal burning.  Any type of commercial tree harvesting that requires excess debris to be burned constitutes logging slash and therefore requires a permit to burn.  To request a permit for slash burning, call DFPA at 541-672-6507.

 

The 2015 fire season began on June 1st and lasted 147 days.  Firefighters suppressed 122 fires which burned roughly 14,400 acre on the Douglas District.  Lightning sparked 25 fires and accounted for 2 acres, whereas 97 human caused fires burned the bulk of this summerís acreage.  The 2015 fire season will be remembered locally for the Cable Crossing fire which started on July 28th and burned 1,848 acres and the Stouts Creek Fire which started on July 30th and burned 26,452 acres on land protected by DFPA and the Umpqua National Forest.
