This week marks the start of fire season for all land covered by the Douglas Forest Protective Association. The decision comes with the dry conditions and warmer temperatures in the area. You can no longer use exploding targets or burn yard debris on land protected by the DFPA, but fire officials say it's not too late to make your home safe from wildfires. "Wait a day or two for temperatures to drop back down, but get the stuff mowed, cut up,” said Kyle Reed, with the DFPA. “There's still a lot to do after the winter storm." Reed suggests to also re-check previous pules burned in the spring. People can be held liable for fire suppression costs and damages if a previous debris pile escapes containment.
