The spring outdoor burning season is temporarily suspended for one week due to high fire danger. This ban begins Thursday, April 15th, 2021.
The Lane Fire Defense Board and Oregon Department of Forestry have banned outdoor burning activities in Lane County. Unseasonably dry conditions in combination with high winds have contributed to an increase in fire danger risk.
The season is tentatively expected to re-open on Thursday April 22nd if the fire risk subsides.
However, if Lane County’s fire danger remains elevated burning may be prohibited further.
Remember, you can always check the day's Burn Advisory by calling 541-726-3976 or visiting: https://www.lrapa.org/177/Outdoor-Burning-Program
Outdoor burning began Tuesday, October 13th. Backyard burning is regulated by the Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA). Remember before burning you must have a burn permit on the premises and call the burn advisory number on the permit or look online (LRAPA) to determine if it is a burn day and what times are permitted.
