Hello. We have a house in Clackamas County. When we want to burn we call the “Burning Information Number” to hear the daily report. We have never been charged for this. I just called Clackamas County Fire regulations and was told the following. “During burning season you are allowed to burn a 10X10X10 pile without a permit. If you want to burn larger piles or out of the burning season you will need to get a permit.Burn barrels can be used during the burning season for yard debris only and there is not a charge.” If anyone would like to check my information the number to call is 503-742-2660.
