outdoor burning

by Sarah Craig
Thursday, June 15th, marks the last day of the outdoor burning season for most Lane County residents. Lane County Fire Defense Board closes the spring outdoor burning season every summer as fire season approaches. High temperatures and elevated fire risk keep the season closed until the fall outdoor burning season begins in early October.
