Fire Season Begins May 28th

Effective May 28th at 12:01AM, fire season officially begins and burning will no longer be allowed until the official declared end of fire season in the fall. With the official start of fire season, industrial fire restrictions on DFPA protected lands will be in effect and burning will NOT be authorized within the fire district.

Responsible Burning Pause

To our community and customers, this weekend’s weather is forecast to be great for all sorts of outside activities with higher than average temperatures, low humidy and high winds. With that said, these conditions are perfect for an increased risk of fire danger as well. Though burning has not been restricted yet, we are asking that everyone please do their part, and pause any burning until we see a change in weather patterns sometime next week. Thank you for your help!
