MULTNOMAH COUNTY, Ore. – Fire Defense Board Chief Scott Lewis has lifted the outdoor burn ban in all areas of Multnomah County. The burn ban has been lifted due to the recent rainfall and moderate temperatures, which has improved the moisture content of the local ground cover.
Recreational campfires, fire pits, and agricultural burning is now permitted on DEQ approved burn days. Yard debris and open burning is still not permitted; the usual start date for these is on or around October 1.
