CFPA Advises Caution With Outdoor Burning

The Coos Forest Protective Association announced now that fire season is over, landowners can burn piles that they have accumulated over the summer. The CFPA does not require a permit to burn debris piles or use a burn barrel outside of fire season. They advise to keep in mind that some cities require permits all year. Even though residents are not required to have a permit, you are still responsible and potentially liable for your actions, so use caution. Water, fire tools and attendance should be standard practice for any burning. CFPA Fire Wardens are glad to come out and point out safety tips and review safe burning practices with you. “We are happy to help the public accomplish their burning in a safe manner. Large piles and multiple pile burns can be a challenge to burn”, said Nils Storksen, CFPA Unit Forester.
