County burn ban lifted
Multnomah County has removed the outdoor burn ban in all areas of the county.
The burn ban has ended due to recent rainfall and moderate temperatures, which improved moisture content of ground cover.
Recreational campfires, fire pits and agricultural burning are now permitted by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality on approved burn days. Yard debris and open burning is still not permitted.
The usual start for backyard burning is approximately Oct.1.
