INTERIM Burn Ban Lifted for Multnomah County Tuesday April 22, 2021

Fire Defense Board Chief Scott Lewis has lifted the outdoor burn ban in all areas of Multnomah County.

The burn ban is 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 Oct. 1.

Check with your local fire department/district for more information. For updated information, call the burning information line at:

·         503-618-3083 for Gresham, Troutdale, Wood Village, Fairview, Fire District 1

·         503-695-2225 for Corbett Fire District 14 

·         503-621-1242 for Sauvie Island District 30
