Today's Fire Danger

Burn restrictions in effect

On September 23, 2023, Tillamook County will lift its burn ban in effect since July 15, 2023.  All burning, including recreational fires, requires a permit.  Permits may be obtained below.  

Note that recreational beach fires do not require a permit and are regulated through Oregon Parks.   Please keep your beach fires under 2 feet in diameter, away from driftwood logs, and at least 50 feet away from dune grass.  Use only wood or manufactured logs as fuel.  Be sure to attend to the fire at all times, and completely extinguish WITH WATER when complete.  (Do not just cover the fire with sand!)  

If a Red Flag warning is in effect, please refrain from outdoor fires of any kind (recreational fires, charcoal grills, smoking) and restrict use of power equipment.   Continue to check this site regularly.

During fire season, usually June 1 through September 30, check burn restrictions prior to burning.

Burn piles larger than 5 feet in height and 10 feet in diameter require a site inspection and a Provisional Burn Permit.
