News Release
Fire Season Begins - 06/10/19

Douglas County Fire District No. 2 follows Douglas Forest Protective Association (DFPA) guidelines. Fire Season will begin Tuesday June 11th at 12:01 a.m. in all Douglas County Fire District No. 2 area.

 

“The start of fire season also means the end of unregulated outside debris burning for rural Douglas County residents.  Due to poor burning conditions which have come earlier this year than normal, burn permits for debris piles and burn barrels will not be issued.  Those wishing to burn yard debris before Tuesday are encouraged to exercise caution and are reminded to never leave the burn unattended.  In addition, fire officials recommend checking any debris piles that were burned earlier this spring.  If not properly extinguished, burn piles have the potential of smoldering for weeks, or even months, before popping back to life on a warm, windy day.”

 

For more information, please see the attached release from DFPA.
