Burn carefully

A burn suspension continues for brush, grass and yard debris fires. Burn barrels are also not allowed.

Campfires are still allowed, but the state Division of Forestry has asked people to keep campfires small and contained. Safe fire practices, including burning at least 15 feet from vegetation and making sure a fire is cold before leaving it, are also recommended.

For the most recent fire information call 260-4269 or visit http://forestry.alaska.gov/burn.
