Absolutely no outdoor burning is allowed in the Illinois Valley. Additional restrictions are imposed by the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF).
A dry winter left dead vegetation (fallen trees and branches, leaves and litter, etc.) unusually low on moisture content. The extended forecast for summer in southwest Oregon predicts hotter and drier than normal conditions, increasing the likelihood of wildfires starting easily and increasing in size faster. ODF's fire precaution regulations prohibit activities that commonly cause wildfires.
