Weekend Burning Precautions
Going into the weekend with our temperatures warming up a bit. We are not into fire season yet, but it is around the corner. Use precautions if burning, keep piles small and manageable, don’t light more than you can put out quickly! Burn in cleared areas, also have water and fire tools available on site. Don’t burn if windy and put out your burns before leaving unattended, make sure its cold to the touch!
If in doubt, don’t burn. Have a safe weekend

Debris Burning Open
Residential debris burning on private lands is currently OPEN within the La Pine Fire District. This will be day to day as the season is coming to close. State forestry and county fire chiefs normally close the open burn season mid-May to early June dependent on weather conditions. So, check back each day you burn.
You must always have a BURN PERMIT (click here) on site, follow all guidelines therein, and call the Burn Information Line at 541-536-9056 prior to burning. Burn permits are also available at each fire station and at the administrative office. They are in a white mailbox outside the front door. It is not necessary to call the business office. Burn Permits are self-monitoring, we do not take any information from you.
No flames or other fire activity is allowed after dark, so please time your burn to be complete by dusk.
An able bodied attendant must be present at all times.
When burning you mush have a shovel, rake, and a working water hose that reaches the burn pile or several buckets of water.
You may only burn dry paper, cardboard, clean lumber and vegetative materials. No garbage or other manmade materials may be burned.
Please watch the weather closely when you burn. If high or gusty winds and/or high temperatures are expected your burn pile must be extinguished. Expect that fire behavior in the afternoon will increase due to higher temperatures and wind.
The La Pine Fire District strongly encourages citizens to continue to FireWise their homes and properties to assist in protecting from wildfire.
Remember every fire you light is your responsibility – forever. If your fire gets out of control, CALL 911 immediately.
