OCTOBER 18, 2021 – Burn Season is Now Open

Yard debris and vegetative burning is OPEN for Deschutes County residents of La Pine Fire District.  All residents who wish to burn must obtain a burn permit and have it onsite, follow all guidelines therein, and call the Burn Information Line at 541-536-9056 prior to burning.

Burn permits are also available at each fire station and at the administrative office.  Burn Permits are self-monitoring as the Fire District personnel do not take any information from applicants.

Outdoor Debris Burning Guidelines

No flames or other fire activity is allowed after dark, the burn should be timed to be complete by dusk.

An able bodied attendant must be present at all times.

When burning one must have a shovel, rake, and a working water hose that reaches the burn pile or several buckets of water.

One may only burn dry paper, cardboard, clean lumber and vegetative materials. No garbage or other man-made materials may be burned.

Please watch the weather closely when burning. If high or gusty winds and/or high temperatures are expected the burn pile must be extinguished. Expect that fire behavior in the afternoon will increase due to higher temperatures and wind.

Other options for pine needle and ladder fuel debris disposal are to chip on site or haul to the La Pine Transfer Station.
