Yard debris burning allowed starting Sept. 19 for Lincoln County


    Lincoln County Burn season

    The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board and nine fire protection agencies are opening burn season Thursday, September 19 due to recent rain and precipitation in the forecast.

    “The risk of fire spread has decreased and is expected to remain at a low level,” Newport Fire Department Fire Chief and Lincoln County Fire Defense Board Chief Robert Murphy said in a news release. “This summer’s weather was not as dry as the previous two summers and this kept fuel moisture levels higher and moderated fire danger throughout our region.”

    Many Lincoln County fire agencies require a permit to burn yard debris — also known as open burning and we encourage the public to contact their local fire agency for specific regulations regarding burning of yard debris. Below is contact information for all Lincoln County Fire Agencies:

    • North Lincoln Fire & Rescue – 541-996-2233
    • Depoe Bay Fire District – 541-764-2202
    • Newport Fire – 541-265-9416

    “We thank the public for adhering to the burn regulations this summer,” Murphy said. “Their cooperation, along with the quick response of all of our Lincoln County firefighters helped keep wildfires to a minimum.”
