The Douglas Forest Protective Association on Thursday reduced the fire danger to "moderate" and the industrial fire precaution level to 2 following cooler temperatures, higher humidities and scattered showers in the region.
During moderate fire danger, residents are restricted from mowing dry grass, using power saws for non-industrial purposes, cutting, grinding or welding metal for non-industrial purposes or other power-driven machinery not specified in DFPA’s public use restrictions between the hours of 1 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Under the industrial precaution level, feller-bunchers with rotary head saws, cable yarding, blasting or cutting, grinding or welding metal is prohibited between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m.
However, power saws may operate at loading sites.
Backyard debris burning, including the use of burn barrels, remains prohibited. All other restrictions under DFPA’s Public Use Restrictions remain in effect and unchanged.
