City asks property owners to reduce fire risk from grass and weeds


ROSEBURG, OR – With fire season on the way, the city of Roseburg reminds property owners to maintain all grasses and weeds to a maximum height of 12 inches.

As the rain diminishes and temperatures rise, vegetation dries out rapidly and fire danger to homes and other properties increases.

For that reason, all tall weeds and grasses, including blackberry vines, must be kept to the 12-inch height restriction year-round as required by the Roseburg Municipal Code.

Failure to maintain grasses and weeds at the appropriate height could lead to fines or penalties being imposed by the city.

Owners of vacant properties in residential subdivisions must keep their grass mowed.

Thank you for your help in keeping our citizens safe and Roseburg beautiful.
