Campfires, firepits are back in Sisters Country

As of Friday, October 1, local fire agencies lifted a recreational burn ban in all areas within the Sisters-Camp Sherman and Cloverdale Fire Districts.

During the peak of the summer fire season several local fire agencies banned all burning, including recreational fires, due to red-flag warnings and extreme predicted fire behavior in the area.

Recreational fires include those used for pleasure, religious, ceremonial, cooking, warmth, or similar purposes.

The move does not include yard debris burning within the Sisters-Camp Sherman and Cloverdale Fire Districts. Open yard debris burning typically opens around November 1 each year.

Residents are encouraged to contact their local fire protection agencies for additional burning information and regulations. Sisters-Camp Sherman and Cloverdale Fire Departments will continue to monitor weather and fuel moisture conditions in their district and may make modifications on a day-to-day basis.
