KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Outdoor burning in the Klamath Falls-area air quality zone will resume for parts of Saturday and Sunday before concluding for the Spring season.
Weather conditions are forecasted to be favorable over the weekend, but will be monitored to assure outdoor burning remains advisable.
Klamath County Public Health (KCPH) officials said burning may occur between 8 a.m. and noon Saturday and Sunday. Fires must be extinguished by noon. The Spring outdoor burn window will close at noon Sunday.
Dry conditions, related to the drought, low humidity and wind gust activity make burning dangerous over the next several days. KCPH has jurisdiction within the air quality zone and cannot authorize burning in other areas.
