ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Industrial fire restrictions will be lifted in the Umpqua National Forest Tuesday.

Fire officials with the USDA Forest Service said last month provided lots of moderating conditions allowing them to drop the fire danger to a low status. 

People are encouraged to still completely extinguish campfires entirely before leaving a site since campfires are permitted outside campgrounds. 

Firefighters with the Umpqua National Forest put out 66 fires this year totaling almost 12 acres.
