Open Burning within YRFPD Boundaries

YRFPD has the authority to issue permits for burning within the boundaries of the fire district, which run from South of Yachats, North to the City of Waldport and east 10 miles up the Yachats river. Open burning includes any burning conducted outdoors (e.g. burn barrels, outdoor fireplace, back yard incinerator, piles of yard debris stumps or untreated unpainted lumber). There are two categories of burning:

  1. Yard debris burning – This is material from trees and shrubs that have grown on the property, unpainted dimensional lumber, paper and cardboard.
  2. Fire Pit – This is a warming, s’more, hot dog use contained fire. It is NOT intended for yard debris burning.
