VIDEO: Some residents have had a head start on outdoor burning season as a way to clear out debris from January’s ice storm. Outdoor burning season starts for most of Lane County at the start of March, but people within the city of Springfield and its urban growth boundary were given the green light to start burning storm debris earlier in February. Travis Knudsen with the Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA) said they lifted certain restrictions to help clear debris that could possibly become fuel during fire season. “What the City of Springfield did is they asked the Lane Regional Air Protections Agency's board of directors to consider some changes or variances on some of the county wide rules that regulate outdoor burning," he said.
