Fire Ban Downgraded to Fire Advisory

Effective June 1, 2023 at 11:30am

Recent rainfall has increased the moisture content of ground fuels; however, overall ground water and natural water reservoirs remain low.

The following activities continue to be prohibited:
• Any fire requiring a Fire Permit
• Burn Barrels and Incinerators

The following activities are allowed:
• Recreational fires and back yard fire pits
• Propane and natural gas-powered appliances
• Charcoal barbeques

Thorhild County urges everyone to use care when performing allowed activities. Even the smallest grass/brush fire can quickly become out of control with strong winds. Ensure fire extinguishers or sources of water are readily available.

Off Highways Vehicles are allowed within the borders of Thorhild County including public lands. Care should be used to ensure these vehicles do not become a source of ignition for light ground fuels. Carrying a fire extinguisher on the vehicle is recommended.
