Current Fire Restrictions
Even with the recent rain, our forests are still extremely dry under the surface and all burning in our District is still closed, except for specific designated campgrounds. This includes all campfires and solid fuel BBQs (including charcoal and pellets) on both public and private lands. Portable cooking stoves using liquefied or bottled fuels are still allowed.
Chainsaw use is allowed until 1:00 pm. You must have fire suppression equipment and ample water or fire extinguisher on hand, and stay on site for 2 hours afterwards doing a fire watch.

Please note: La Pine Fire District does not create or enforce fire regulations and closures. These are created by various governmental agencies including ODF, USFS, BLM, and the State Fire Marshal’s Office. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) and Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch (COID) are the agencies with enforcement authority for these regulations. Regulations issued by the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) apply to all private lands in the La Pine Fire District. We share dual jurisdiction and in general, if you live in the La Pine Fire District, you are also governed by the ODF restrictions. You can visit Deschutes County Dial at https://dial.deschutes.org, enter your address, and click on “Current Tax Statement.” If you see “Department of Forestry Fire Patrol” on the tax breakdown, then their regulations apply to your property. Many of our residents also live in an HOA, which may have additional restrictions. The more stringent restrictions of the two are the ones that apply in that situation.
