SPRING CLEANING PROTECTS HOMES FROM WILDFIRE

 

Fire officials with the Douglas Forest Protective Association and local fire departments are urging homeowners to take time this spring to create defensible space around their homes to help reduce the risk of wildfire-related property damage.  Creating defensible space is a relatively simple, effective way to reduce a home’s wildfire risk, for little or no cost.

Defensible space is the area around a home or other structure where fuels and vegetation are treated, cleared or reduced to slow the spread of a wildfire.  By having adequate defensible space, the risk of a wildfire spreading from the surrounding vegetation to a nearby home is greatly reduced.

Homeowners can create defensible space by pruning nearby trees, removing underbrush, mowing tall grass, and by removing all dead or dying vegetation within 100 feet of structures.  In addition, pine needles and leaves which have accumulated in gutters, on the roof, and other places around the home should also be removed.

Besides vegetation which could pose a fire hazard, residents should also look at all flammable materials which are stored around their home and could be used as fuel for a wildfire.  For example, firewood piles, gas cans, propane tanks, and lumber piles should all be stored at least 30 feet away from a home during fire season.  In addition, other common everyday items which are found around homes, and are made of plastic, rubber, wood, or other flammable material are potential fuel for a wildfire.

While no homes were lost as a result of wildfires within the Douglas District during the busy 2015 fire season, over 300 structures were threatened by the Stouts Creek Fire alone, which burned 26,452 acres of private, BLM, and Forest Service lands near Milo.

For more information about creating defensible space, contact the Douglas Forest Protective Association or your local fire department.
