Right now, with the fire season be high right now, going to extreme, we have an open bun suspension going on, and it will precede as long as we have the high heat and light winds that are drying out our ground fuels at a rapid rate right now. Talking with forestry, that means that all burn barrels and open burning has been suspended. So recreational fires are the only allowed fires right now, if the winds and the weather continues, forestry may put a burn ban on, which we’ve seen in past seasons only because of the type of weathers we have. As of right now, campfires are allowed, burn barrels and open burning has suspended.”
