Yard Debris Burning resumes in Lincoln County effective Thursday, September 19
The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board, and the nine fire protection agencies are opening burn season Thursday, September 19, 2019. With our recent rain and forecasted precipitation, the risk of fire spread has decreased and is expected to remain at a low level.
This summer’s weather was not as dry as the previous 2 summers. This kept fuel moisture levels higher and moderated fire danger throughout our region. We thank the public for adhering to the burn regulations this summer. Their cooperation, along with the quick response of all of our Lincoln County firefighters helped keep wildfires to a minimum.
Many Lincoln County fire agencies require a permit to burn yard debris (also known as open burning. We encourage the public to contact their local fire agency for specific regulations regarding burning of yard debris. Below is contact information for all Lincoln County Fire Agencies:
