Following a rapid brush fire Saturday morning, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue has announced they are re-enacting a high fire danger burn ban. The fire occurred on Southwest Beef Bend Road when the wind spread flaming leaves from a burning pile into a nearby field. According to TVF&R, access to the field was difficult, but firefighters responded quickly and managed to prevent damage to nearby structures. This fire, as well as other recent fires, contributed to TVF&R re-enacting the burn ban. The burn ban prohibits backyard or open burnings, agricultural burning, and any other land clearing. It doesn’t prohibit small cooking or warming fires, or grills/smokers.
