Recreational Burning Regulations

The Fire Department, Oregon Department of Forestry, or the State Fire Marshal’s Office can limit burning if conditions are deemed to be unsafe (e.g., during extremely hot and dry periods).

Development land-clearing burning, burning of construction debris and the burning of garbage (including furniture) are not permitted at any time within a 6-mile boundary around the city of Corvallis (which includes the entire Fire District).

Bonfires require a permit and at least one (1) inspection.
