Burning season is on in the Sisters Country - but spring conditions can make burning dangerous.
On Tuesday, April 22, Cloverdale Fire District responded to a report of an open debris pile burning next to a building in windy conditions. Five firefighters responded with a brush truck and a water tender to extinguish the fire.
According to Fire Chief Thad Olson, this was the third fire of this type firefighters from Cloverdale responded to that week. An additional similar fire was reported last week.
Recently, Olson reported, an escaped burn pile pushed by high winds destroyed two utility trailers and was dangerously close to the home when firefighters arrived.
Cloverdale Fire District reminds property owners to follow all burning regulations and that no burning is allowed during windy conditions. Contact your local fire district if you have any questions and to make sure burning is open prior to burning.
