Burn suspension in place for the Kenai Peninsula

(Kenai Peninsula, AK) – Due to current and forecasted weather conditions, open burning has been suspended by the Alaska Division of Forestry until further notice.  Burning in burn barrels is also suspended at this time.  Campfires are allowed but must be kept smaller than three foot by three foot.  If you build a campfire remember to have plenty of water on site to suppress any embers that may escape your campfire enclosure. Individuals should check any fires they have lit in the past month to ensure that they are completely out.
