LRAPA says generally speaking, the burning season runs from Oct. 1 until Jun. 15, but those dates often fluctuate depending on the weather. For instance, the mostly dry conditions have limited burning this year.
LRAPA Public Affairs Manager Sally Markos says, “We’ve had a lot of fog, cold and strong air inversions, which have kept air quality poor over the last few months, so burning has not been allowed because of air quality.
Though, LRAPA does work with the Lane Fire Defense Board to coordinate when burning is allowed, they come at it from an air quality perspective.
