News Release
Multnomah County Fire Departments And Districts Declare Summer Burn Ban- Effective July 25 - 07/25/22

GRESHAM, OR – Multnomah Fire Defense Board Chief Scott Lewis has issued an outdoor burn ban effective immediately in all areas of Multnomah County due to forecasted high temperatures, limited rainfall, and ongoing dry conditions. The Ban goes in effect Monday, July 25.

The burn ban includes recreational campfires, fire pits, yard debris (branches, yard debris, etc.), agricultural burning (agricultural wastes, crops, field burning, etc.), and permits issued for open burning (other land clearing, slash, stump, debris, or controlled burning) until further notice. Check with your local Fire Department or District for more information. For updated information please call the burning information line at:

Outdoor barbecuing (grills, smokers, and similar cooking appliances with clean, dry firewood, briquettes, wood chips, pellets, propane, natural gas, or similar fuels) is still allowed; however, residents should exercise extreme caution. When using charcoal briquettes please properly dispose of ashes in a covered metal container away from combustibles, and keep the ashes wet for a few days before properly disposing of them. Maintain at least ten feet between outdoor cooking and anything combustible such as siding, fences, shrubbery, etc.

Smokers are reminded to ensure their cigarettes are truly out and placed in proper receptacles.

Those living in rural areas are asked to maintain their defensible space by monitoring growth surrounding homes and structures, and to maintain adequate access for firefighting equipment.
