Fire seasons restrictions published by the Oregon Department of Forestry state that burn barrel burning may be allowed until July 1 with a permit.

All IVFD BURN PERMITS EXPIRED MAY 31ST. That means absolutely no outdoor burning (including burn barrel burning) is allowed in the Illinois Valley. Additional restrictions were imposed by the State Forester on June 2 when fire season officially began.
A dry winter has 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. The fire precaution regulations prohibit activities, such as debris burning, that commonly cause wildfires in late spring and early summer.
