Medford Oregon 17 October, 2023– The Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest has removed the fire danger rating on all five Ranger Districts across the forest, signaling the end of fire season, effective at 12:01 a.m. October 17, 2023. The Industrial Fire Precaution Level has been removed and changed to “open.” This ends the level one precautions that have been in place and moves the forest out of the closed fire season. Emergency Area and Road Closures are still in effect in some fire areas. Visit for current closures. Special thanks to all of the firefighters who worked tirelessly all summer to protect our forest and communities. Please take care as you enjoy your public lands, and help us keep them, and you, protected, by recreating with care.
