Due to a Burn Closure And/Or Burn Suspension being in effect, Burn Permits are NOT being issued at this time.

Here are a few tips from the Alaska Division of Forestry, BLM Alaska Fire Service, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and U.S. Forest Service to help prevent wildfires this weekend and the rest of the summer

  • Never leave a fire unattended.
  • In areas where open burning is allowed, make sure you have a Division of Forestry burn permit and follow the safe burning guidelines listed on it. Call your local state forestry office or go online to ensure burning is allowed on the day you want to burn.
  • Clear areas around campfires down to mineral soil to reduce the chances of escapement.
  • Keep campfires small and manageable.
  • Have tools and water on hand to prevent fires from escaping.
  • Make sure campfires are completely extinguished before you leave them, by repeatedly drowning them with water and stirring the coals and ashes until they are cold to the touch.
  • Dispose of barbecue ashes or coals in a fireproof container; do not dump them in the woods.
  • Call 911 immediately if there is a wildland fire emergency.

Information about safe burning practices is available at local forestry offices, local fire departments and online at http://forestry.alaska.gov/burn. A directory of statewide forestry offices can be found at http://forestry.alaska.gov.

Remember, you are responsible for any fire you start.
