Our fire district follows Yamhill and Polk County Fire Defense Board recommendations. Also, the Oregon Department of Forestry and the Department of Environmental Quality established regional burning regulations.
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.
