Please read all of your burn permit and follow the burning rules that are outlined on the permit.
Burn permits are issued from early October, weather dependent, through May 31st, extensions may be issued by the Fire Marshal's Office if moisture levels permit. July through September is the time when no burn permits are issued and all outdoor burning is closed with the exception of campfires. Even through we live in a beautiful green area and are surrounded by water, there is still a very real fire danger during the summer and fall.
Remember: "ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES".
