Burn permit suspension still in effect

Until further notice, the cities of Kenai, Homer and Nikiski fire service areas are immediately suspending or continuing suspensions of open burning. No burning may be conducted during windy conditions. The burning suspension will stay in place until measurable precipitation reduces the wildfire danger.

A person who lights any fire that results in wildland fire suppression may be responsible for payment of those suppression costs.
