Outdoor Debris Burning is now Closed
La Pine Fire District Outdoor Residential Debris Burning is CLOSED in Deschutes County and Klamath County effective June 1, 2016.`
All residential debris burning is now closed within the La Pine Fire District for the remainder of the 2016 wildfire season. Expect a re-opening in around mid-October.
The La Pine Fire District strongly encourages citizens to continue to FireWise homes & properties to protect from wildfire. Options for pine needle and ladder fuel debris disposal at this time are: to chip on site, or haul to the county transfer site, and/or pile and cover the materials in a safe location and burn later in the fall after the first snow.
Note that small campfires and barbecues are still permissible unless fire conditions go to the extreme level and a total statewide emergency burn ban is enacted.
Campfires are allowed with a permit and only in established and approved campfire rings no larger than 3’ diameter and must use cut fire wood and/or charcoal briquettes. A shovel and bucket of water is required at every campfire and it must be dead out before you leave the site. Permits for campfires are free and available on-line, or at any of the district’s fire stations. Remember every campfire you light is your responsibility - forever.
Always call the Burn Information Line at 541-536-9056 to check for updates before you begin. You must have a valid Burn Permit (click on Link) at the site and follow all guidelines therein.
IF YOUR FIRE GETS OUT OF CONTROL CALL 911!
Remember, Your Fire, Your Responsibility!

Fire district burn regulations pertain to private lands and residential burning only. US Forest Service and BLM Fire agencies will have prescribed burning on public lands under strictly controlled circumstances to promote forest health and wildfire fuels reductions throughout the year.
