Fire Season for the Northwest Oregon Forest Protective Association - Forest Grove, Tillamook, and Astoria Districts - will be terminated at 01:00 on Tuesday, September 17, 2019. This is the earliest exit since 1997. (In 1997 we terminated fire season on September 16.)
All Fire Season and Public Use Restrictions for all weather zones (NW1, NW2, and NW3) in this area are rescinded at that time.
As a reminder, burning permits are required for logging slash. For backyard and other burning, contact your local fire department burn line for burning information. While fire season is over, we do expect a few periods of dry east winds that will present some fire hazards. Always be mindful of the weather, monitor your burns, and extinguish them in compliance with burning regulations and burn plans.
