Gilliam County Burn Ban Lifted Early

The Gilliam County burn ban is lifted as of October 1, 2021. The burn ban was scheduled to last until October 15, 2021.  Residents are cautioned to use care when burning. Please remember fine fuels can still dry quickly when the wind begins blowing. 

Controlled fires are the responsibility of the person who starts them, and if they move onto someone else’s property, the responsible party may be held liable. All fires need to be out by sunset and people performing controlled burns need to have fire suppression equipment on site to make sure fires don’t spread. Anyone wanting to burn will still need to contact Frontier Regional 911 at (541) 384-2080 with the following information: location of controlled burning, date and time when burning will take place, and contact information for the responsible party.  Within the city limits of Arlington, a burn permit is still required, and obtained through the City of Arlington.
