The Division of Forestry Kenai office has suspended open burning. The suspension prohibits open burning of brush, grass and yard de-bris.
Campfires are allowed during permit suspensions, individuals must adhere to Alaska laws. The fire must be surrounded by a fire break that is clear of all vegetation. Water for extinguishment must be on site and the fire must be attended to until it is completely out.
