Hot and dry weather conditions have forest officials with the Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest increasing fire levels Monday morning.

The forest will upgrade their fire code to a level two. New restrictions on camp fires, ATV, and other activities will go into effect throughout the entire forest.

Officials hope the restrictions will reduce the chance of a human caused wildfire in the forest.
