Deschutes County Fire Chiefs have agreed to open controlled burning within Deschutes County this weekend. Municipal and rural fire jurisdictions will open burning this Saturday, October 8, 2011 for outdoor burning of debris and agricultural burns with the exceptions noted below.   

 
Black Butte Ranch Fire District will enter a limited burning period that begins October 15th and runs through November 30th. 
 
The city of Bend and the city of Sisters have year-round bans on outdoor burning within city limits.  
 
Residents are strongly encouraged to contact their local fire protection agencies for specifics or any regulations regarding open burning of debris or agricultural burns. The Chiefs also strongly recommend that those who chose to burn debris do so early in the day, prior to winds picking up that could spread a fire to nearby combustibles.
 
“While colder temperatures and added moisture decrease the potential for debris burns to escape and become a wildfire hazard, we ask that residents please take special care in burning activities,” adds Chief Koellermeier, Chairman of Central Oregon Fire Chiefs Association. Fire agencies may make independent changes based on weather and fuel conditions so please review all local regulations before burning activities.
 
The US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management will continue with planned burning projects on federal lands.
 

Oregon Department of Forestry will allow regulated burning on lands protected exclusively ODF.
