On Tuesday, the Coos Forest Protective Association announced that fire season will begin on Friday. That activates restrictions for both public and industrial forest use on all public, county, state, and Bureau of Land Management Lands within CFPAs District boundaries. Jef Chase of CFPA said the start of fire season means the end of unregulated outside burning for Coos, Curry and western Douglas counties. Chase said the outside burning of debris piles and the use of burn barrels will be prohibited until fire season is terminated. The release said residents living within an incorporated city need to contact their local fire department for burning restrictions and permit details. Under Oregon law, the use of tracer ammunition and exploding targets is prohibited during fire season, and the use of sky lanterns is prohibited year-round.
