For Immediate Release

Lincoln County Complete Burn Ban Notification

The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board, and the nine fire protection agencies are announcing the
closing of all burning effective this Friday, September 4, 2020, at 08:00am. The fire ban applies to
wood, charcoal, and other flame sources that cannot be turned off with a valve. Liquid fuel stoves or
cooking devices that CAN be turned off with a valve are permitted but cannot be left unattended. This
ban includes fires in campgrounds and on the beaches.

Fire danger is at an extreme high. Lower than normal fuel moisture levels along with forecasted
hotter/dryer weather compound the danger. Local fire agencies have limited resources to respond to a
wildland fire.

This burn ban will remain in effect until conditions moderate and notification provided by the Lincoln
County Fire Defense Board. Please contact your local fire agency if you have any questions.
