Under the restriction, residential yard waste and land clearing burning is restricted on a temporary basis until conditions moderate.
According to the Fire Marshall, all residential yard waste and land clearing burning is prohibited until further notice.
The use of charcoal briquettes and recreational campfires are allowed if built in improved barbeques, fire pits or in designated campgrounds, such as those typically found in local, county, state parks or commercial campgrounds.
On private land, campfires are permitted with the landowner’s permission if built in the following approved manner:
Completely extinguish campfires by pouring water or moist soil in them and stirring with a shovel until all parts are cool to the touch. The use of self-contained camp stoves is encouraged as an alternative.
