Burn Ban Has Been Lifted

Burning is now allowed in Washington County.

Safety rules for your burn piles:

  1. 1. Locate them well away from any buildings, fences, brush, or trees.
  2. 2. You must have a bare dirt fire break completely around the burn pile, a good rule of thumb is that this fire break needs to be one and a half times the height of the burn pile, so a burn pile four feet high would need six feet of bare dirt all around it.
  3. 3. You must attend your burn at all times, and have firefighting tools like shovels or rakes, as well as a garden hose, ready.
  4. 4. Soak the pile when you are done, stir it up, and soak it again, repeating this until it is cool to the touch.
  5. 5. Things like garbage and construction debris, are not allowed in your burn pile. Yard debris burn season is for burning the leaves, limbs, and brush that grows on your property. Agricultural burn season is for the debris from a working farm or orchard operation.

If you have any questions feel free to call the station: (503) 985-7575
