Sisters Country fire chiefs to reopen recreational burning

Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire Diustrict

SISTERS, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Sisters-Camp Sherman and Cloverdale fire districts have announced that recreational burning will reopen on Friday in all areas within the two fire districts.

The reopening does not include Forest Service land or campgrounds, including the Tract cabins in Camp Sherman.

Earlier this month, 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 and does not include yard debris burning within the Sisters-Camp Sherman and Cloverdale fire districts.

Open yard debris burning typically opens around Nov. 1 of each year.

Residents are strongly encouraged to contact their local fire protection agencies for additional burning information and regulations.

The 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.  Please call your local fire agency for more information.
