Burning Information

Our fire district chooses to follow regional burning regulations established by Oregon Department of Forestry and Department of Environmental Quality.

Open Burning Season:

Backyard burning is allocated for two seasons: Spring, from March 1 to June 15, and Fall, from Oct. 1 to Dec. 15. However, it may be closed on any given day during the season, due to weather or air quality issues, so people are required to check the appropriate burn line on a day-to-day basis.
