Oregon/Washington Fire Closures & Restrictions

Fire Restrictions

Fire restrictions and closures are one of the most effective tools that land management agencies can use to reduce the risk of human-caused wildfires during periods of high or extreme fire danger.

Fire restrictions and closures are carefully considered and often change quickly due to variable weather conditions.

Other federal, state, and local government agencies may have their own restrictions and closures for the lands under their management. For example, the Oregon Department of Forestry and the Washington Department of Natural Resources issue restrictions pertaining to public use and work-related activities in their respective states.

For your safety and the safety of first responders, please check for current fire restrictions and closures while planning your trip to public lands.

Closures

Fire closures will be enacted for actively burning fires or for areas that burned in the past and remain hazardous.

Restrictions

Fire restrictions can affect activities such as having a campfire, using a chainsaw, smoking, and accessing certain locations by vehicle or on foot. On average, an estimated 87 percent of wildfires nationally are caused by humans, so restrictions during high fire danger can help decrease the possibility of a new fire start.
