The City of Silverton is prohibiting all campfires and open flames in city parks effective immediately. Gas grills or barbecues that can be turned off with a valve are still permitted, but cannot be left unattended. The ban is in response to Governor Brown's declaration of a fire emergency, and an area-wide ban issued by the Marion County Fire Defense Board. The campfire and open flame ban includes Silverton Marine Park and all other day-use parks, and applies to wood, charcoal, and other flame sources that cannot be turned off with a valve.
Call Silverton Public Works for more information, 503-873-6359 or Silverton Fire District, 503-873-5328.
