Two days left to burn
June 28, 2011 · 1:12 PM
The weather is better. The sun is out more often. And with great weather comes — an increased risk of fire.
The time for burn piles is about to end. All burn permits expire after Thursday, June 30.
Controlled burning should resume in October, depending on fire-risk conditions at that time.
Recreational fires — those measuring two-feet in diameter or less — are still allowed after June 30. Barbecues and fireplaces are not affected by the end of the burn permit season.
