The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has lifted the burning suspension. 

Before you burn -- even a burn barrel -- you should go to the State of Alaska Division of Forestry site and download a small scale burn permit.

Every day that you are going to burn you should call 822-8665 before you burn. You'll get a recording that will tell you what the conditions are. The permit you need to download and print has instructions on burn barrel requirements, small pile burning requirements, and lawn burning requirements.

 Last Year More Than 2.6 Million Acres Burned And Drew 5,000 Lower 48 Firefighters To Alaska – This Year, Due To Covid-19, The Division Of Forestry Wants To Avoid That.

The fires that hit Alaska, especially the fire in the Kenai, were almost impossible to suppress, even with the added manpower. This summer, though, travel restrictions and quarantines due to the virus can take down firefighter availability by 30% says State Forestry Fire Program Manager Norm Mcdonald – making effective fire suppression even harder.

For details, contact the Division of Forestry at 356-5512 or locally at 822-5534.
