The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board, and the nine fire protection agencies are announcing the closing of all burning effective Thursday, September 8, 2022, at 8:00pm through Sunday, September 11, 2022, at 6:00am.  The National Weather Service has issued a Fire Weather Watch in our area. Fire danger is at an extreme high; lower than normal fuel moisture levels, forecasted hotter/dryer weather, and increased wind compound the danger. Local fire agencies are continuing to assist other areas in Oregon for active fires limiting resources to respond to a wildland fire.

Oregon Department of Forestry, West District, will move Lincoln County to HIGH fire danger on Friday throughpossibly Sunday.
See ODF Regulated Public Use Info Sheet Regulated Use Restrictions live webpageThis burn ban is expected to remain in effect until Sunday, September 11, 2022, at 6:00am but may be extended depending on conditions. Firefighting resources are strained throughout the state supporting activefires in our sister counties. Lincoln County has dispatched fire fighters several times this summer in support of those efforts our most recent dispatch is returning home today.
This fire weather event is similar to the 2020 Oregon Labor Day fires. It is not expected to be as severe but is considered just as dangerous. Nonetheless, extreme precautions and safeguards during this time are necessary and of the utmost importance.  Please contact your local fire agency if you have any questions, as burning restrictions may vary based on location and jurisdiction.
