Backyard Burn Ban Still in Effect

BENTON COUNTY, Ore. — A burn ban is still in effect for Linn, Benton and Marion counties.

The Oregon Department of Forestry is reminding residents that even though summer is over, backyard debris burning is still banned until further notice due to dry weather.

The department says because there has been little rain, fire danger is still high.

Those who violate the burn ban may receive a citation.

For more information on fire restrictions, call the nearest Department of Forestry office or your local fire department.
