07/18/19 Burn Suspension or Open Burning Restriction and Map for Kenai Peninsula Borough and Surrounding Areas

The burn suspension is still in effect on the Kenai Peninsula until further notice. What does this mean? You may not use burn barrels to burn trash. You cannot burn slash piles or debris of any kind on private or public lands.

What is allowed? Private property owners may have a campfire contained, and no bigger than three feet in diameter on certain lands. You may cook on a charcoal grill or a camp stove too. The attached map was created to help minimize some confusion. The map indicates where campfires are allowed (in green) and what areas are not allowing any type of burning (in yellow).

Remember, the burn suspension is still in effect, and while it is still legal to have campfires in “green” areas, please don’t build one until the Kenai gets some soaking rain days. Let’s have green grass not wildfires and ash.

When in doubt, check it out. Visit these links for more information in your area:
