Outdoor Yard Debris Burning Open
Lincoln County, the Lincoln County Fire Defense Board, and the eight fire protection agencies are opening burn season tomorrow, Friday, October 26, 2018. With our recent rain and forecasted precipitation, the risk of fire spread has decreased and is expected to remain at a low level.
This summer’s weather was unusually dry and warm. This brought record low fuel moisture levels and increased fire danger throughout our region. These conditions prompted the Lincoln County Fire Defense Board to take the rare step of putting in place a total burn ban for all of August and September. We thank the public for being patient during this time and for their cooperation. Their diligence, along with the quick response of all of our Lincoln County firefighters helped keep wildfires to a minimum.
Many Lincoln County fire agencies require a permit to burn yard debris. We encourage the public to contact their local fire agency for specific regulations regarding burning of yard debris.
