MULTNOMAH FIRE DEFENSE BOARD LIFTS BURN BAN EFFECTIVE OCT. 1, 2022
The summer outdoor burn ban has been lifted in all areas of Multnomah County effective October 1, 2022
Multnomah County, Ore. - Fire Defense Board Chief Scott Lewis has lifted the outdoor burn ban in all areas of Multnomah County effective October 1, 2022. The burn ban has been lifted due to the cooler temperatures, increase in nighttime moisture, and the return of rainfall, which has improved the moisture content of the local ground cover.
Keeping in mind the recent wildfires throughout Oregon, however, please ensure any outdoor burning is conducted as safely as possible.
Recreational campfires, fire pits, and agricultural burning is now permitted on DEQ approved burn days. Yard debris and open burning is allowed only in permitted areas. Yard debris and open burning is never permitted in the City of Portland.
Yard debris burning in Troutdale and Fire District 10 will begin on Saturday, October 1st with DEQ approval.
Yard debris burning in Gresham, Fairview, and Wood Village will begin on Saturday, October 15th with DEQ approval.
