News Release 7/1/2015: Burn Ban in Effect for Multnomah County

Today, until further notice, based on the continuation of high temperatures and dry weather, we're placing a burn ban in effect for Multnomah County, including Portland. This will include no open fires, including any ceremonial and recreational fires. In Multnomah County, within the boundaries of Portland, Gresham, Corbett and Sauvie Island follow these provisions:

* No fires, including recreational 
* BBQs in approved devices professionally designed and built for such use will be allowed, but not in any natural areas.
