The Washington County Fire Defense Board, in cooperation with the Oregon Department of Forestry, has enacted a burn ban in Washington County effective Friday, July 29th, 2016 at 0100.

Following that decision, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue will ban all outdoor open burning throughout our jurisdiction, including areas served by TVF&R in Multnomah, Clackamas and Yamhill Counties, effective at the same time.

The Burn Ban includes the following:
1. All backyard or open burning (of branches, yard debris, etc.).
2. All agricultural burning (agricultural wastes, crops, etc.).
3. All land clearing or slash burning

The Burn Ban does not include:
1. Small backyard recreational fire pits (maximum 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet high) with clean, dry firewood, natural gas or similar.
2. Outdoor fireplaces and portable fireplaces (chimineas, etc.) with clean, dry firewood, briquettes, propane gas or similar.
3. Permitted fireworks displays.

Individuals intending to burn in this manner should use extreme caution, and all combustible vegetation and materials should be cleared from the area. Additionally, all recreational fires must be constantly tended until the fire is fully extinguished.

If conditions worsen, TVF&R may ban recreational fires as well. The burn ban will remain in effect until weather conditions minimize fire danger.
