All open air fires, including campfires, chiminea fireplaces, crop residue fires, fireworks, and any other type of outdoor burning, are prohibited. All open air fire permits are cancelled for the duration of the ban. Gas-fired and charcoal barbecues, as well as outdoor propane fireplaces, are exempt from the fire ban.
To report a fire during a ban, call 911. Should a violation of the fire ban result in response by firefighters, individuals responsible may be charged for the full cost of the service call.
