The Industrial Fire Precaution Level (IFPL) will increase to IFPL IV (four) on Saturday, August 22, 2015, at 12:01 a.m. for the entire Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest.

On Oregon Department of Forestry-protected lands in Jackson and Josephine counties, IFPL III (three) is in effect.

Public use restrictions remain in effect, limiting the use of campfires to fire rings within designated campgrounds. No fires are permitted in wilderness. Current Public Use and Wilderness Restrictions can be found at http://www.oregon.gov/odf/pages/fire/precautionlevelmap.aspx
