Burn ban to be lifted

Payette City, Payette County and Malheur County will be lifting the burn ban on Sept 5. Burn permits are still required when burning. We also ask you to please be careful as the area is still extremely dry and a small burn can get out of control in seconds. It is also required that you have a way of extinguishing the fire and have a fire break around the burn. Before starting any burns you are required to contact Payette County Dispatch at 642-6006 ext 1175. 

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of fellow Firefighter & Brother Corey George on Aug 20, 2014
