Lincoln County Parks

All Burning is Prohibited in Lincoln County (Effective: 7.27.18)

The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board is closing all burning countywide (including in cities) effective: 7.27.18. The fire ban applies to wood, charcoal, and other flame sources that cannot be turned off with a valve. Liquid fuel stoves or cooking devices that CAN be turned off with a valve are permitted but cannot be left unattended.

Fire danger is at an extreme high, even in our normally-damp coastal areas. To compound the danger, many local fire agencies currently have resources deployed to assist with fighting the many wildland fires active in Oregon. Lincoln County has sent out two task force groups in the past week, and will likely be activated again this summer. The unusually high fire danger coupled with the reduced available firefighting resources make a complete ban on burning the right thing to do.

This burn ban will remain in effect until further notice. For additional updates please sign up for Lincoln Alerts at www.co.lincoln.or.us/alerts. Please contact your local fire agency if you have any questions.
