Debris Burning Open
Yard debris and vegetative burning is OPEN for Deschutes County residents of La Pine Fire District. Klamath County is still in wildfire season and has NOT opened outdoor burning. Only dry vegetative material, clean wood or lumber, dry paper and cardboard may be burned.
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.
Other options for pine needle and ladder fuel debris disposal are to chip on site or haul to the county transfer site.
Reminder Regarding Burn Season – which is now open from the La Pine Rural Fire District Website:
