Clackamas Fire Enacts High Fire Danger Burn Ban - 06/23/21

Beginning Wednesday, June 23 at 8:00 a.m., Clackamas Fire enacted a High Fire Danger Burn Ban, due to high temperatures and low humidity. This is critical fire weather and will be in effect through Thursday, July 1. Burning restrictions are authorized under Oregon Revised Statute 478.960 and Oregon Fire Code Section 307.

The burn ban prohibits all the following:

- Backyard or open burning (yard debris, branches, etc.).

- Agricultural burning (agricultural wastes, crops, etc.).

- Any other land clearing, slash, stump, waste, debris, or controlled burning.

The burn ban does not prohibit:

- Small outdoor cooking, warming, or recreational fires. These include portable or permanent fire pits and campfires, with a maximum of three feet in diameter and two feet in height, burning only dry, cut firewood.

- Barbeque grills and smokers with briquettes, wood chips, pellets, or propane.

There may be more restrictive open burning rules within an Oregon Department of Forestry boundary. ODF restrictions may include prohibitions on campfires, smoking, target shooting, powered equipment, motorized vehicles, and other public or private landowner and industrial fire restrictions. More information about ODF fire restrictions are available at: www.oregon.gov/ODF/Fire/Pages/Restrictions.aspx.

Outdoor fires in violation of this burn ban may be immediately extinguished and the person responsible may be liable for all costs incurred, per ORS 478.965.

Clackamas Fire encourages the public to exercise extreme caution when outdoors to help prevent the sparks that cause wildfires. Big or small, the prevention of wildfires is everyone’s responsibility.
