County residential and commercial burning closes

Submitted by the San Juan County Fire Marshal.

Residential and Commercial burning closes for the season effective June 1. Permits will become available again in October.

Recreational campfires remain open at this time and include attended fires consisting of clean, dry firewood in an approved fire pit up to three feet in diameter surrounded by at least three feet diameter of bare soil, gravel, or other non-flammable material. Recreational fires should be located a safe distance from structures and have a charged hose or 5-gallon bucket of water nearby to assist with extinguishing. Be sure your recreational campfires are “dead out” by saturating them with water before leaving them unattended.
