Outdoor Debris Burning is now Open!

November 2018

Outdoor debris burning in the La Pine Fire District is now open.

During open burn season, it is required that you have a copy of the Burn Permit on site, follow all guidelines therein, and always call the Burn Information Line at (541) 536-9056 to check the status.

Permits are available online at www.lapinefire.org.

            Please keep your eyes open for fire hazards of any kind in our neighborhood and report them immediately to the Firewise Community Chairman, Bob Dixon, at (503) 572-2805.

At-Site Requirements for All Burns:

  • A minimum of 5 gallons of water, a 4A extinguisher, or a working water hose
  • An able-bodied adult in attendance at all times
  • A shovel
  • A  rake
  • A permit

Please phone the burn line at (541) 536-9056 prior to burning to verify that weather conditions are favorable toward a safe “burn day.”  Regardless of time of year, there shall be no burning when wind speeds are predicted to exceed 15 mph, outdoor temperatures exceed 90 degrees, or other extreme fire conditions prevail.

Other Tips and Guidelines:

  • Debris piles shall be no larger than 15 ft wide and 6 ft tall.
  • There shall be a minimum of 10 ft of clear space (bare ground) around the burn pile.
  • The debris pile must be located 50 ft from any structures and 25 ft from the property line, trees, and other piles.
  • Open debris burns are allowed only during daytime hours.  They must be fully extinguished before dark.  Also, bear in mind that winds in the Wild River subdivision tend to increase in the afternoon, thus often rendering necessary the requirement to extinguish the fire several hours before dark.
  • It is permissible to burn only dry vegetative material.  Burning of wet vegetation creates unhealthful air quality which is offensive to neighbors.  Please burn courteously at all times to ensure that smoke does not become a disturbance to others.
  • Finally, make sure that the fire is “dead out” before leaving the site.


For those who wish to dispose of yard debris, please be invited to access the Southwest Transfer Station located off the east side of Highway 97 between Sunriver and La Pine.  Hours of operation are 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Wednesday through Saturday.  For further disposal questions, phone (541) 317-3163.
