Due to the current dry conditions and high temperatures forecasted to continue throughout the extended forecast, all burning within the city limits of Baker City is hereby banned effective Friday July 7th, at noon.

The burn ban will remain in effect until reevaluated later in the fall when the area has received enough moisture for fuel recovery. The use of barbecues is still allowed, but all open burning or use of burn barrels is closed. The Baker City Fire Department urges all residents to be extra vigilant with any type of ignition sources as temperatures are forecast to remain high with very low humidity into the extended forecast.
