15 October 2014: ODF:


      Fire season ends today on Oregon Department of Forestry-protected lands in southwest Oregon. Rainfall of at least one-half inch was recorded in many parts of the district, which includes state, private, county, city and Bureau of Land Management forestlands in Jackson and Josephine counties.
   Fire season started June 2 and lasted 136 days.
   The termination of fire season removes fire prevention regulations on equipment use and the use of fire for debris burning. This applies to the public and to industrial operations on forestlands. However, many structural fire protection districts require permits for debris burning, and both Jackson and Josephine counties have telephone numbers to call to find out whether air quality conditions allow burning. The numbers to call are:

  • Josephine County: (541) 476-9663
  • Jackson County: (541) 776-7007

   More than 280 fires burned 9,559 acres on forestlands protected by ODF's Southwest Oregon District. There are 1.8 million acres of forestland within the district's protection boundary in Jackson and Josephine counties.
   The largest blaze on the district was the Oregon Gulch Fire, which burned 35,129 acres of forestland in Jackson and Klamath counties, and Northern California. The Jackson County portion of the fire burned 8,306 acres, approximately 14 miles southeast of Ashland. The Oregon Gulch Fire was reported July 30 and was one fire in a complex of 23 other lightning-caused fires scattered around Jackson County.
   The Salt Creek Fire, which also started July 30, burned 155 acres of forestland approximately 8 miles west of Shady Cove.
   Lightning started 98 fires on the district and burned 9,071 acres. The thunderstorms hit July 11, July 22, July 29-30, August 11 and August 18.
   The earliest fire on the district this year was the 143-acre Alder Creek Fire, which started January 23 during a period of unusual dryness and strong east winds. A fire that had been set to burn slash escaped control and started the Alder Creek Fire.
   The 2014 fire season was similar to the summer of 2013, during which 348 fires burned 43,078 acres on lands protected by the Southwest Oregon District. Lightning-caused fires that year burned more than 42,000 acres.
   For more information about the Oregon Department of Forestry's fire season regulations, contact the unit office in your area.

   FDL & IFPL Lowered

      Rain Reduces Fire Danger Level
   Cool and wet weather across southwest Oregon reduced wildfire danger on lands protected by the Oregon Department of Forestry’s Southwest Oregon District. The public regulated use fire danger level dropped to “moderate” (blue) today. Industrial Fire Precaution Level (IFPL) 1 (one) is also in effect..
   All restrictions on power equipment use by the public have been suspended. The restrictions on campfire use outside of designated campgrounds and driving motorized vehicles off improved roads have also been suspended. However, pile burning and burn barrel use will not be allowed. Fire season remains in effect in southwest Oregon.
   Fire prevention regulations may change in a few days if dry weather conditions return.
   These regulations affect 1.8 million acres of state, private, county, city and Bureau of Land Management lands in Jackson and Josephine counties.
   The following public fire prevention regulations remain in effect:

  • No debris burning, including piles and debris burned in burn barrels;
  • No fireworks use on forestlands;
  • Exploding targets and tracer ammunition, or any bullet with a pyrotechnic charge in its base, are prohibited;
  • Smoking while traveling is allowed only in enclosed vehicles on improved roads;
  • Electric fence controllers must be approved by a nationally recognized testing laboratory, such as Underwriters Laboratories Inc., or be certified by the Department of Consumer and Business Services, and be installed and used in compliance with the fence controller’s instructions for fire safe operation.

   Under IFPL 1:
  • Loggers and other industrial operators must have fire suppression tools at the job site;
  • Watchman service must be provided.
