Briefing to City Council 9-21-20

Briefing by Chief Murphy to the Newport City Council concerning the Echo Mountain Fire

Outdoor Burning

For Immediate Release 9-18-20

Recreational Fires now allowed in Lincoln County


The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board, and the nine fire protection agencies are announcing the lifting of the complete burn ban effective immediately. The rain we received overnight and today has reduced the fire danger enough to allow recreational fires. This includes campfires in State Parks, on the beaches, and in designated locations as allowed by Oregon Department of Forestry.


Backyard debris burning is still closed at this time. Lincoln County fire agencies ask the public to be careful with fire. Make sure and attend your fire, have a water supply and fire tools available, and put your fire ‘cold’ out when you are finished. Please contact your local fire agency if you have any questions.
