Yard debris burning season will close Monday in North Lincoln County due to unusually dry conditions and low precipitation and re-open when fall rains return around Oct. 1, North Lincoln Fire & Rescue officials said.

Recreational fires are still allowed and do not require a permit. Anyone with questions regarding burn permits and back yard burning may call NLFR at 541-996-2233.

NLFR offers the following safety tips for recreational fires:

— Have a water supply available and extinguish your fire before you leave.

— Keep recreational fires at least 15 feet away from any structure or combustible materials.

— Extinguish all beach fires with water rather than sand.

In addition, Oregon Department of Forestry-Toledo Office reports that fuel moisture levels in the county are at remarkably low levels. The yard debris burning closure coincides with ODF beginning fire season and regulated use for the Western Oregon District.
