Backyard Burn Season Opens - 10/25/18

Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, 2018, Clackamas Fire District #1, in conjunction with the Oregon Department of Forestry, will lower the fire danger level to moderate and allow the burning of backyard fires. The backyard open burn season will be legal to burn on many rural properties within the county, but is prohibited year-round in city limits.

Backyard open burning is the burning of dried debris, no larger than 10’x10’x10’, and 50 feet from a structure. During the backyard open burn season, typically from Oct. 1 to Dec. 15, residents are asked to call before burning by checking Clackamas Fire’s daily burn status hotline at: 503.632.0211 or visiting the website at: www.clackamasfire.com.
