The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board and the nine fire protection agencies announced the closing of all burning as local fire departments continue to assist other areas in Oregon with active fires. Assisting with the fires has limited resources, making it difficult to respond to a wildland fire.
The burn ban will remain until further notice. Fire officials said if conditions improve the ban will be lifted.
Lincoln County’s ban applies to: wood, charcoal, and other flame sources that cannot be turned off with a valve. Liquid fuel stoves or cooking devices that can be turned off with a valve are permitted but cannot be left unattended. The ban includes fires on the beaches and day use park areas, commercial, private and county campgrounds.
