Fire Season Begins Friday June 9th, 2023

The Douglas Forest Protective Association (DFPA), the Umpqua National Forest, and the Bureau of Land
Management (BLM) Roseburg District have announced that the 2023 fire season will officially begin Friday, June 9th at 12:01 AM. All private, county, state, and Bureau of Indian Affairs land within the Douglas District as well as the public lands within the Umpqua National Forest and Roseburg District BLM are included in the fire season declaration, which imposes certain fire restrictions on the public and industrial operators to help prevent wildfires. Douglas County Fire District #2 follows these recommendations and burning will no longer be allowed.

In addition to the declaration of fire season, the DFPA will implement Public Use Restrictions Friday, and the BLM Roseburg District will issue a Fire Prevention Order for BLM-administered lands. Public use restrictions will be assessed and announced later for the Umpqua National Forest. These fire prevention restrictions are put in place to ensure fire-prone activities do not start wildfires.
