The approach of Labor Day and the last camping trips of summer has fire managers concerned
News Release from Oregon Dept. of Forestry

forest fire

While this week's weather has moderated to cooler than normal temperatures and the feeling of fall is in the air, fire danger is still very real throughout central Oregon. The limited precipitation in the area did little to improve the fuel conditions that have been extreme throughout the summer. The approach of Labor Day and the last camping trips of summer has fire managers concerned ...the cool weather will give a false sense of security.

The Central Oregon District of the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) remains in a regulated closure, which restricts activities with the potential to ignite fires. Campfires continue to be prohibited on lands protected by ODF, including Oregon State Parks. This campfire ban includes warming fires and cooking fires. Hunters are encouraged to be prepared for theses cooler temperatures as they go to the field so they will not be tempted to build a fire to stay warm.

Open burning such as burn barrels and debris burns within the Central Oregon District require a permit from ODF during fire season. Currently no permits are being issued. Burning without a permit can result in citations or fines.

Additional restrictions are included in the regulated closure which regulate activities such as chainsaw use, cutting of dried grass, and welding. The full closure can be found here. In addition to these restrictions exploding targets, tracer ammunition, and sky lanterns are all prohibited during fire season. Check with other agencies such as Bureau of Land Management, National Forests, county emergency management, or local fire districts to determine their current restrictions when engaging in activities in their jurisdiction.

Requirements for industrial operations, including fire watch and tools, also remain in effect. Fuel conditions are monitored by fire managers to evaluate fire growth potential and to determine restrictions needed to reduce the risk of ignition. Information regarding fire season rules and regulated closure restrictions can be found at the Central Oregon District webpage. Please contact a local ODF Office if you have questions regarding the regulated use closure or other activities on lands protected by ODF. Human-caused fires are well above the 10-year average this year. Please use caution so your Labor Day activities do not add to this number.

The Red Flag Warnings and Fire Weather Watch have subsided for Yamhill County. As a result the McMinnville Fire Department has lifted the recreational burning restrictions that were put in place on August 20th. The restrictions on Backyard fire pits, patio fire pits, propane campfire pits and charcoal BBQ's were lifted Friday morning.

Caution:  This is only for McMinnville City limits. The Oregon Department of Forestry still bans all open flames within their jurisdiction.  Please remember that the fuels are still very dry and use caution.  Also note:  Seasonal Burning Restrictions on Backyard and Agricultural Burning are still in effect
