Burn Ban In Effect

The annual burn ban for the The Dalles Unit of the Oregon Department of Forestry went into effect on Friday.  The ban, done in conjunction with all local fire districts, affects all lands within Hood River and Wasco counties.  All current burn permits will be void until the ban is lifted.  ODF officials say the end of the ban will be determined at a later date when the region receives a significant amount of fall rain.  Some exceptions may be granted for agricultural purposes, but permission must be obtained from your local fire agency.  In addition ODF is in a Regulated Use Closure, which bans the use of all fireworks on ODF-protected lands.
