      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.

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;
