Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue will ban all outdoor burning in its service area which includes Aloha, Beaverton, Durham, King City, Newberg, North Plains, Rivergrove, Sherwood, Tigard, Tualatin, West Linn, Wilsonville and unincorporated portions of Washington, Clackamas, Multnomah and Yamhill counties effective Monday, July 10. This ban is coordinated with Washington County Fire Defense Board and Oregon Department of Forestry.

The burn ban prohibits all of the following:
• All backyard or open burning (branches, yard debris, etc.)
• All agricultural burning (agricultural wastes, crops, field burning, etc.)
• All other land clearing or slash burning

The burn ban does not prohibit:
• Small backyard recreational fire pits (maximum 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet high) with clean, dry firewood, natural gas, briquettes or propane
• Outdoor fireplaces and portable fireplaces (chimineas, etc.) with clean, dry firewood, natural gas, briquettes or propane
• Permitted fireworks displays with designated fall-out zones & safety plans

Individuals found to be in violation of these requirements during the burn ban may be held liable for the cost of extinguishment and for any property damage resulting from an illegal fire.

The burn ban will remain in effect until weather and fuel conditions present less fire risk.

TVF&R urges residents to use extreme caution with smoking materials, barbecues, and other open flames. Visit our website at for more tips, including how to protect a home located in a wildland urban interface from potential wildfire.
