Outdoor Burning


Issue Date: June 30, 2022

Issued By: Lincoln County Fire Defense Board

Notice: City of Newport and Newport Rural Fire Protection District

Back Yard Debris Burn Ban

Backyard debris burning ban is now in effect for the Newport Fire Department. This ban is specific to yard debris burning and does not include recreational campfires, portable propane/patio fireplaces, or charcolal BBQ grills.

Reminder: Carelessness is the largest cause of wildfire. Escaped fires of any kind resulting in property damage requiring efforts from a fire agency or multiple fire agencies, may result in fines and individual financial responsibility for damages caused and for fire response recovery, per Oregon Revised Statue; 476.920 - Billng owner of property for cost of extinguishing fire.

Backyard debris burning will reopen in the Fall of 2022 and residents will be required to have a permit to burn yard debris. We have instituted a new online burn permit process.

We thank the public for exercising caution during our dry summer. We ask everyone to be fire safe and courteous to your neighbors when burning yard debris. Please call us if you have any questions.
