Outdoor Yard Debris Burning
Beginning on Monday, June 17th, outdoor yard debris (also known as "open burning") will be closed for the summer for both the Newport Fire District and Newport Rurual District and will reopen in the fall.
Recreational fires, inside the city limits, are still allowed and do not require a permit. However, outside the city limits, in the Rural Fire Protection District, a permit, or waiver, is required by ODF. A recreational fire is an outside fire, not bigger than 3 feet by 3 feet, used for pleasure, religious, ceremonial, cooking, warmth or similar purposes.
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.
