The Oregon Department of Forestry, Astoria District, announced that effective October 11, 2017 at 1200 hours (noon), Fire Season will officially end. With the end of fire season, logging operations are no longer subject to fire protection laws, such as maintaining fire equipment at logging sites. This area includes all State, private and BLM forest lands in the Northwest Oregon Area, which includes the Astoria, Tillamook and Forest Grove Districts of the Oregon Department of Forestry.
Burning permits are no longer required from the Oregon Department of Forestry for burn barrels or open burning.

If you live within a fire district, please contact your local fire department to inquire about burn permits.
