Burning update for The Dalles Unit

Modified Burn Ban

Effective Saturday October 7th, 2017 lands protected by the Oregon Department of Forestry in Hood River County will enter a modified burn ban.  The modification to the current burn ban allows for burn barrels and small debris pile burning to take place between 6am and 11am.  All fires must be fully extinguished by 11am.  As always, any burning requires a current burn permit, acquired at your local fire authority.

Grounds protected by Oregon Department of Forestry in Wasco County continue to be in a strict burn ban.  This means there is no burning allowed in burn barrels nor debris piles until the ban is fully lifted.  Cooperating fire agencies in Wasco County are monitoring the weather and fuel moistures closely to ensure the burn ban is lifted when conditions safely warrant burning.

For questions, please contact your local fire authority or contact Oregon Department of Forestry, The Dalles at: 541-296-4626.  Thank you for your continued efforts to keep Oregon green.
