News Release
The summer outdoor burn ban has been lifted in all areas of Multnomah County - 09/29/21

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 29, 2021

 

Media advisory: The summer outdoor burn ban has been lifted in all areas of Multnomah County

Multnomah County, Ore. - Fire Defense Board Chief Scott Lewis has lifted the outdoor burn ban in all areas of Multnomah County. The burn ban has been lifted due to the cooler temperatures, increase in nighttime moisture, and the return of rainfall, which has improved the moisture content of the local ground cover.

Keeping in mind the recent wildfires throughout Oregon, however, please ensure any outdoor burning is conducted as safely as possible.

Recreational campfires, fire pits, and agricultural burning is now permitted on DEQ approved burn days. Yard debris and open burning is allowed only in permitted areas. Yard debris and open burning is never permitted in the City of Portland. 

Yard debris burning in Gresham, Fairview, Troutdale and Wood Village will begin on Saturday, October 16 with DEQ approval.

Check with your local Fire Department/District for more information. For updated information please call the burning information line at:
