Conditions in Bozeman City limits are extremely dry and as such have created a high fire danger. Due to
area wildfires, mutual aid resources are limited. The majority of area fire departments have also put burning
restrictions in place.
Pursuant to Bozeman Municipal Code No. 18.04.080, the Bozeman Fire Chief is temporarily suspending all
open burning within the Bozeman City Limits, effective August 21, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. Non permit required
recreational fires are included in this closure.
Barbeque grills, approved outdoor fireplaces, chimineas, and other contained appliances are still allowed to
be used. The Bozeman Fire Department encourages citizens to never leave these devices unattended and to
dispose of charcoal ashes in approved metal containers.
This suspension will remain in effect until moisture improves conditions.
Thank you for your patience during this closure.
