The Pendleton Fire Department will be conducting a wildland training burn on Tuesday, June 6th from approximately 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on the vacant field just west of Walmart.
This area of the city has a history of grass fires, especially during the Fourth of July fireworks celebration. The Pendleton Fire Department in cooperation with the property owner is taking this proactive approach to not only mitigate the fire hazard but to provide valuable training experience to its personnel.
This training burn is subject to specific weather conditions. Should the conditions not be ideal, the burn will be postponed.
