Fire Advisory in Effect

Effective March 7, 2024 at 4:30 p.m.

Given the lack of ground moisture over the winter leading to severe drought conditions in our region, Thorhild County has issued a Fire Advisory effective, March 7, 2024 at 4:30 p.m. Any outstanding Fire Permits are hereby cancelled. Any active fires from a permitted burn must be immediately extinguished.

Residents are urged to inspect permitted burn sites to ensure they are completely extinguished. Fires can smolder underground and flare up into a wildfire when the conditions are right. It is the landowners responsibility to ensure that all permitted burns are extinguished prior to expiration of their permit.

Use extreme caution when working or driving in grassy areas and be mindful of debris collecting on hot exhaust, which can heat up, fall to the ground, and start a wildfire.

The following activities are prohibited:

•           Any fire requiring a Fire Permit

The following are allowed; to be used with caution:

•           Burn Barrels and Incinerators
•           Recreational fires and back yard fire pits
•           Propane and natural gas-powered appliances
•           Charcoal barbeques

Fire Chief
