Burn Ban Lifts Saturday Morning

The Oregon Department of Forestry and local fire agencies in Hood River and Wasco counties will lift the burn ban in Wasco County and the modified burn ban in Hood River County as of 1 a.m. Saturday.  This applies to burn barrels and small backyard piles.  Large industrial piles and fuels treatment project piles are not being allowed.  Valid burn permits from either the Oregon Department of Forestry or local fire departments are still required for all outdoor burning activities.  Officials advise people to have an adequate buffer around any burn pile or barrel, have a good water source available, and digging tools are required in case there is an escaped fire.  Also plan burn activities on cool days when the wind is calm.
