“No burn” season in effect October 1 to December 15

It is illegal to do any open burning within 150 feet of any woodland or brushland between the daylight ours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m during the fall and spring forest fire hazard seasons, which run from October 1 to December 15 and from February 15 to April 30 respectively.

Because the humidity rises during the day and winds fall, restricting burning until after 6 p.m. during the fall and spring reduces the chances of outdoor fires escaping.

Residents should call the Division of Air Quality at 1-502-782-6592 to learn about other specific regulations before burning anything.
