Due to the increased wet weather over the past week, all restrictions within fire district boundaries regarding power equipment and recreational fires have been lifted. Burning of yard debris is still banned.

District patrons are still encouraged to exercise extreme caution when doing things that could lead to a fire. The Oregon Department of Forestry Eastern and Western Lane have also adopted the same precautions for their protected lands.
