Burn Ban Status: September 17, 2015


Burn Ban Lifted for Multnomah County

Due to the return of rain and cooler weather, the burn ban in effect for Multnomah County since July 1st has been lifted. Outdoor recreational fires, campfires and fires in outdoor fireplaces or chiminea type devices are again allowed throughout Multnomah County, including City of Portland, Gresham, Corbett, and Sauvie Island.

Backyard and agricultural burning is never allowed in the city of Portland, however jurisdictions having authority outside city limits, including Gresham, Corbett, and Sauvies Island, have lifted their respective bans and are allowing this burning today.  Remember to always check with your local fire departments before any backyard or agricultural burning as this may change due to weather or air quality issues.
