Please find the attached media release from the Lincoln County Fire Defense Board on the re opening of burn season, effective 10.12.20.

Yard Debris Burning allowed in Lincoln County effective Monday, October 12, 2020

The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board, and the nine fire protection agencies are opening burn season Monday, October 12, 2020. With our recent rain and forecasted precipitation, the risk of fire spread has decreased and is expected to remain at a low level.

We thank the public for adhering to the burn regulations this summer. This summer showed the damaging results of out of control wildfire in our County. We remind you to use caution when burning yard debris.
Many Lincoln County fire agencies require a permit to burn yard debris (also known as open burning. We encourage the public to contact their local fire agency for specific regulations regarding burning of yard debris.
