DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- Officials with the Douglas Forest Protective Association said recent rainfall has allowed them to lower the fire danger to low.

Officials said that change will be effective immediately. However, officials said restrictions will remain in effect, and all backyard debris burning remains prohibited.

They said during low fire danger, there are no shutdown times on the mowing of dead grass, the use of power saws for non-industrial purposes, the cutting, grinding, or welding of metal, or on any other power-driven machinery not specifically mentioned in DFPA’s Public Use Restrictions.

They said all other restrictions under DFPA’s Public Use Restrictions remain in effect and are unchanged.
