- Burn only small, manageable amounts of material at a time
- Don’t burn when the weather is dry and windy
- Keep at least 10 feet of bare ground around your burn barrel in all directions
- Don’t burn with dry vegetation downwind, including crop stubble
If your fire gets away from you, call 9-1-1 immediately! Wildfires grow rapidly and can quickly become a threat to life and property. The sooner your fire department gets there, the smaller the fire will be.
