By Assistant Chief Bryan Daniels
September 17, 2019

Yard Debris Burning allowed in Lincoln County effective Thursday, September 19th.

The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board, and the nine fire protection agencies are opening burn season Thursday, September 19, 2019. With our recent rain and forecasted precipitation, the risk of fire spread has decreased and is expected to remain at a low level.

This summer’s weather was not as dry as the previous 2 summers. This kept fuel moisture levels higher and moderated fire danger throughout our region. We thank the public for adhering to the burn regulations this summer. Their cooperation, along with the quick response of all of our Lincoln County firefighters helped keep wildfires to a minimum.
