The Douglas Forest Protective Association will increase the fire danger to “high” for the entire Douglas District effective Wednesday, June 24th. The change in fire danger is a result of dry forest fuels and the projected hot, dry weather.
Fire officials are also reminding everyone that both public and industrial fire restrictions are increasing over the next couple days.
On June 24th, public use restrictions, known as a Regulated Use Closure, goes into effect for all DFPA protected land. On June 25th, DFPA will move into Industrial Fire Precaution Level II (IFPL 2) for zones DG-1, DG-2, UA-1, and UA-2.
