Outdoor Burning


Burning within the Fire District boundaries is regulated by both the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the Fire District. DEQ rules can be found at the link below. If you wish to burn, you must call (503) 472-3344 to check burn hours for that particular day. Amity Fire does not require a permit to burn within our district. Burning of tree trimmings, lawn clippings and other yard waste is permitted on burn days. Burning of lumber, construction materials, plastics and other waste is forbidden. More information can be found by downloading the AFD burning regulations below. Always take into consideration the location of your burn pile related to any structures or flamable materials and always have a hose and hand tool ready. If you have any questions or concerns please give us a call. The Fire District will respond to illegal burn calls to ascertain if the fire is "hostile". A hostile fire is one that is an immediate threat to life or property. If the illegal burn is deemed not to be hostile, either the caller or the Fire District may report the burn to DEQ as it would be violating air quality rules.
