All outdoor burning on the Warm Springs Reservation has been banned because of the smoke tied to the wildfire burning in the area. The ban has been issued by the Environmental Protection Agency in coordination with the Confederated Tribes of the reservation. The burn ban applies to all outdoor and agricultural burning - which includes camping and recreation fires and bonfires - and it extends to all areas within the external reservation boundaries regardless of ownership or tribal membership. Ceremonial and traditional fires are the only ones that are exempt from the ban. The ban will remain in effect until further notice.
