Bozeman Lifting Open Burn Ban Friday

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Bozeman will be lifting its ban on open burning first thing Friday morning, but warn fire season is not over yet.

Bozeman's fire chief put the pan in place August 21 after a period of hot dry weather in the area.

There were several wildfires, limiting resources at the time.

Fire officials say they are lifting the ban because of the recent rain and cooler temperatures.

Bozeman's deputy fire chief said even though the ban is going to be lifted, we're not out of the woods yet.

"Just the opposite, that false sense of security with that little moisture we've gotten," said Greg Megaard, Bozeman Deputy Chief. "We really caution people if you're going to burn, be very cognitive of where you're at."

The open burning ban will only be lifted in Bozeman city limits.

To check the restrictions in your area, call your local fire district.
