Lincoln County Burn Ban


A burning ban in Lincoln County will go into effect at 8 a.m. on Friday, August 13, due to extreme fire danger according to fire officials.

The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board and the nine fire protection agencies have announced the closure of all burns as local fire departments continue to assist other areas of Oregon with active fires. Fire assistance has limited resources, making it difficult to respond to a forest fire.

The burning ban will remain in effect until further notice. Firefighters said if conditions improve, the ban will be lifted.

The Lincoln County ban applies to wood, charcoal, and other sources of flames that cannot be extinguished with a valve. Liquid fuel stoves or cooking appliances that can be turned off with a valve are permitted but cannot be left unattended. The ban includes fires on beaches and day-use parks, commercial, private and county campgrounds.
