Fall forest fire season begins october 1st
Outdoor burning restricted from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

From march 1st through may 31st and from oct 1st through dec 31st, outdoor burning is prohibited between the hours of 7 am and 4 pm.. During this three-month period, known as the spring forest fire season, outdoor burning is permitted only in the evening and at night, between the hours of 4 p.m. and 7 a.m., when the chances of a fire escaping are reduced due to cooler temperatures, increased humidity and calmer winds. Besides the daytime burning restrictions, other outdoor burning laws are in effect during this time: * All outdoor fires must have a safety strip for a minimum distance of 10 feet around the materials being burned. This strip must be cleared down to the mineral soil to lessen the chances of an errant spark escaping into the woods and starting a forest fire. * All fires must be totally extinguished and not left unattended for any period of time. Anyone caught breaking the law can be charged with a misdemeanor, fined up to $300, and held liable for costs of fighting the fire and any damage the fire may have caused to others' property. Forestry officials suggest in addition to obeying the state's forest fires laws that residents should never burn anything on a windy day, make sure the area they are burning in is clear of flammable materials, and have tools, such as a rake, shovel, or water hose handy in case the fire does escape.
