Backyard burning can turn into a hazard for the entire neighborhood.
Please remember to call the Canby Fire Burn Line Number at 503-266-1195 before burning and use the resources listed below.
A fire like this could have caught the neighbor’s fencing on fire and with higher winds can spread throughout the neighborhood rapidly. Please use extreme caution during times of dry weather, hot temperatures, and high wind speeds. What looks green now may be able to burn just a few hours after the rain has stopped.
