As of Wednesday, June 8, 2016
Mid-Columbia Fire & Rescue is now restricting all issued burn permits to individuals living outside of the city limits.
The restriction is a result of recent observed fire behavior and current fire danger indicators.
Due to these conditions, the agency will not be issuing any new burn permits until after this year’s fire season.
MCF&R reminds individuals who are allowed to continue using a burn barrel that they must follow all requirements listed on their permit.
Failure to adhere to these rules, or a violation of the burning restriction, could result in individuals being liable for all costs associated with a response to their operation.
For more information, or questions, call Division Chief Dan Hammel at 541-296-9445.
