Outdoor Debris Burning Open With Permit

November 6th, 2020

Residential Debris Burning is Open!

 

You must have a permit for all burning.  Please call the La Pine Fire District burn line at 541.536.9056 before you light a fire.

BURNING GUIDELINES

Debris piles are to be no larger than 15′ wide and 6′ tall.

Burn piles must be 50′ from any structure or deck and 25′ from property lines, trees, and other piles.

Only dry vegetative materials, paper, cardboard and clean wood lumber may be burned.  No garbage or any other man-made materials may be burned.

A shovel, rake, and working water hose that reaches the fire or several buckets of water must be present.

The fire must be attended by an able-bodied person at all times and be dead out before dark.

Please watch the weather closely as you burn.  If high or gusty winds and/or high temperatures are expected, burning must stop immediately even if the burn line has not had a chance to be updated.  Fire behavior in our region will increase in the midday and afternoons due to the usual higher temperatures and wind.

Warming fires must be in established and approved campfire rings no larger than 3′ in diameter.  The warming fire must be 15′ from the edge of the trees, 25′ from any structure or deck, and only cut firewood and/or charcoal briquettes may be used.  The same attendance and suppression rules apply as above.

All members are encouraged to continue to Firewise their homes and properties to assist in protecting from wildfire.

Please submit Firewise Tracking forms to Ken Kennedy, Firewise Chairman, no later than November 14, 2020.
