Fire restrictions suspended for unincorporated Douglas County
Contributed by the BOCC
Effective October 9, weather outlooks indicate the fire danger/hazard for the County has been lessened. As a result, the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) has rescinded all fire restrictions; this applies to unincorporated Douglas County, including U.S. Forest Service Land.
Although the severe fire danger has temporarily decreased, we must all recognize that wildfire danger does still pose a threat.
Sheriff David A. Weaver reminds everyone to use caution when starting and extinguishing campfires, disposing of lighted materials such as cigarettes, and any other activities that involve the use of fire or sparks.
