OREGON OPEN BURN LAWS PROTECT AIR QUALITY/PUBLIC HEALTH

Pollution from outdoor burning can pose a threat to public health and the environment, and can be a public nuisance. Using fire to dispose of debris is a major source of complaints to fire departments and environmental agencies.

"Open burning" includes any burning conducted outdoors. A fire in a burn barrel is open burning, as is burning debris in an outdoor fireplace or backyard incinerator. Other examples include burning piles of yard debris, stumps, construction debris or the remains of demolished structures.
