Douglas Forest Protective Association (DFPA) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Roseburg District have announced that the 2024 fire season will officially begin Friday, June 14, at 12:01 a.m. All private, county, state, and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) land within the Douglas District and Roseburg District BLM are included in the fire season declaration. On private, county, state, and BIA lands, certain fire restrictions are imposed to help prevent wildfires. In addition to the declaration of fire season, the DFPA will implement Public Use Restrictions Friday on private, county, state, and BIA land within the Douglas District. Public use restrictions will be assessed and announced later for the Umpqua National Forest. These fire prevention restrictions are put in place to ensure fire-prone activities do not start wildfires.
